INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE
---------------------------

In 1994 the then three model code agencies, Southern Building Code Congress
International (SBCCI), International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO),
and Building Officials and Code Administrators (BOCA) joined forces and founded
the International Code Council (ICC). Their goal is to develop one complete set
of building codes versus three, thus making life easier for municipalities to
keep their building code current. In 2000 the ICC delivered the first edition of
the International Building Code and has since added several model codes their
library. The 2003 lineup includes International Building Code (IBC),
International Mechanical Code (IMC), International Fire Code (IFC), and 11
others.

The Automatic Fire Alarm Association is putting the finishing touches on a new
2-day seminar entitled "Understanding the Fire Alarm Requirements of the
International Building Code". The class spends the first day reviewing IBC, IMC,
and IFC fire alarm requirements and then on day 2 designs systems to comply with
the requirements. These practice exercises are intended to apply the IBC to real
world examples (i.e. high rise hotel, day care center) and then discuss the
resultant systems.

This new seminar will be available on March 1, 2004 so watch the seminar
calendar at http://www.afaa.org for a class coming to your part of the country
soon.
