Mass State SealConsidering that it took 11 years to go from the 6th edition of the Massachusetts State Building Code to the 7th edition, I was surprised when I learned that the 8th edition is due out the beginning of 2010.  It is based on the 2009 edition of the International Building Code, which references the 2007 edition of NFPA 80 (and includes the requirement for the annual inspection of fire doors).

The BBRS has set up a website with a link to the proposed 8th edition, a list of key milestones in the development process, downloadable proposals for changes to 780 CMR, and BBRS meeting information.

You can access the 8th edition site here.
