Hawaii 

State Adoptions
 

The Hawaii 2007 Legislature created a new Building Code Council Agency that has the authority to adopt any code(s) statewide. The statute specifically names the IBC as one of the statewide codes. The statute also grants authority to adopt other codes as the Council determines, and requires the adoption of a Mechanical code, Private Sewage Disposal Code, Residential Code, Energy Efficiency Code and an Existing Building Code. Upon completion of the code adoption by administrative rulemaking, all State Buildings must use the adopted codes within 1 year. The Four County jurisdictions have 2 years in which to adopt and amend the State Code with local amendments. If the county jurisdictions do not comply within the 2 year time line then the State Code becomes the county's code until such time the county passes an adopting ordinance.
