I attended this meeting, and received the ICC A117.1-2009 standards and the new OBC Chapters 11 and 34. I would like to inform the design professionals in my jurisdiction about these code changes and instruct them on how to access the information.
Is there any place to download and/or print these two documents?
Paul Kowalczyk says
The ICC A117.1-2009 can be purchased through the ICC. We have been instructed that the revised OBC Chapter 11 and revised sections of Chapter 34 will be forwarded to departments as replacement pages. The effective date of the changes will be March 15, 2012. To review the proposed changes, you can go to the OBBS website and look under the Non-residential Building Code Proposed Rule Changes, Part A – Building Code Rules (pdf).
