Massachusetts 8th Edition Approved

The 8th edition of the Massachusetts State Building Code 780 CMR becomes effective on August 6, 2010.  From August 6th, 2010, to February 6th, 2011, there will be a concurrency period during which the 7th or 8th edition requirements can be followed, and after February 6th, 2011, the 8th edition must be used.

The 8th edition is based on the 2009 edition of the International Building Code.  I pointed out a few of the hardware-related requirements that are specific to Massachusetts in an earlier post, and I’ll do a complete run-through when the final Massachusetts amendments become available.

If you’d like more information, here’s a link to the BBRS announcement, and a link to the State Bookstore (currently showing the 7th edition available, but not the 8th).
