The Building Code Council adopted the 2018 North Carolina Building Code at its quarterly meeting in June, 2017.  The 2018 North Carolina Building Code (Except Electrical) will go into effect no later than July, 2018, according to the state’s website.  At that point, we’ll see a minimum six month over lap where either the 2012 NC Code or the 2018 NC Code is acceptable.

So, when is the new code fully active? According to the state’s website, on January 1, 2019, the new code becomes the requirement. Meanwhile, the 2018 Electrical Code went into effect this month.

“The Base Documents for the 2018 NC Codes are the 2015 International Codes,” reports the Office of State Fire Marshal.

You’re not required to wait until the code is fully effective to use it though. See, any code amendment can be used as an alternate set of rules before its effective once it clears Rules Review, of the user requests to use it.
