Yes, pretty much have to do that. If any of these buildings have a life-safety concern, you have the authority to act accordingly and possibly ask for compliance with current requirements.

First off I would like to thank everyone in advance for any information provided. I have recently taken over as the Fire Code Official for my city. My question is this. I have several buildings that have never had a fire and life safety inspection. I also can not find out any information on these buildings from my building department (we just had a huge regime change and a lot of dead weight has been removed). We did not adopt any codes that I’m aware of until roughly 8 years ago (2009 IFC). We have now adopted the 2015 IFC. My question is, do I basically live in Chapter 11 of the Fire code for these buildings and just enforce the other compliance issues as they fit into the rest of the code?
