State Adoptions

The Iowa Code with amendments is based on the 2015 IBC, IRC, IMC, IECC, and IEBC for state owned and rented structures. The State Fire Code with amendments is based on the 2015 IFC and IBC Chapters 2-7. The IFC and IECC are required for all construction. Iowa is a home-rule state and local jurisdictions are not required to adopt the most current version of the Iowa Code.
