Please Note - The effective date of the Uniform Statewide Building Code, Industrialized Building Safety Regulations, and the Amusement Device Regulations is July 1, 2021. The state publications are posted on the DHCD website here: 2018 Regulations. The custom versions of the national model codes that incorporate Virginia amendments are in the process of being published by the International Code Council (ICC) and are available. As in past update cycles, a one-year period is in effect that provides permit applicants a choice of complying with the existing 2015 codes or the 2018 codes.
(Starting July 1, 2021, Virginia will be adopting the 2018 Codes.)
