If planning a remodeling project in the future, you might find it interesting that the 2012 NC Building Code is still in effect. Indeed! Even though the Building Code Council adopted the 2018 North Carolina Building Code last summer, the 2012 code still applies. See, the 2018 North Carolina Building Code (Except Electrical) goes into later than July, 2018.
Then, at that point both Codes are permitted for use. Either is acceptable for a minimum of six months. During the overlap, either the 2012 NC Code or the 2018 NC Code applies. Take your pick. Now, before then, technically you can request to use the forthcoming Code. Just like with any code amendment, the alternate set of rules can be used before it’s technically effective once it clears Rules Review.
Keep in mind, the 2018 Electrical Code went into effect this month.
So, if you’re remodeling and not sure which Building Code book to purchase, you might save money long term to pick up the upcoming Code book rather than the current 2012 NC Building Code.
