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.
Note to Nonmembers: If you join the ICC you can have access to important building safety information!
As an ICC Member, you have access to the Members Area of the Codes & Standards Discussion Forum. Follow the link to discuss the Membership Councils and other benefits of being an ICC Member.

Can anyone comment on the acceptability of using a ships ladder or alt. tread device to access the the 2nd floor of a multi-story dwelling Unit; in a Mulit-Family Building (Group R-2)? Based upon what I read in Section 1009.10 and 1009.11, I would say the answer is that it is not allowable, but I wonder if i am missing some sort of exception here. Thanks for any input!
