2015 IRC Section 311.5.1- I believe this allows for multiple methods of construction that fulfill code requirements. The biggest take away being positively anchored and resistant to lateral vertical forces.

Just out of curiosity – why are there no prescriptive standards in the IRC regarding how to connect stair stringers to floor framing ?

Seems like this is statistically the top cause of stair failure  – but not addressed in the code, beyond the performance standards in R301.
