Codes & Standards Discussion Forum 

Welcome to the ICC Codes & Standards Discussion Forum

The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.

crj... my perception on this issue....
No the exception of 1005.3.2 does not apply since it does not include one story below.

If you have a true basement, the stairway under fire conditions is a chimney.

The second excpetion is a mute point.... this is for stairs going down to exit grade access for stories above.

again this is JMHO... the local AHJ has the final say.
