The IBC, IFC, IMC and IFGC are adopted under the authority of the Alaska State Fire Marshal. The Fire Marshal has the discretion to initiate code adoption of the IBC, IFC, IFGC and IMC when new editions are available. State agency adopted codes are mandatory and fall under state inspection programs. Local jurisdictions can be designated as a Deferred Jurisdiction which allows local administration of building codes. Deferred Jurisdictions may adopt more recent editions and additional codes such as the IECC and IRC. The IRC is not adopted statewide, however the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation adopts the 2018 IRC for its standards.
