2010 Florida Building Codes Effective March 15
The first printing of the 2010 Florida Building Codes, including the now-separate document 2010 Florida Building Code, Energy Conservation, becomes effective March 15, 2012. Adopted by the Florida Building Commission in 2011, the state-developed code claims the 2009 IECC and ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 as base documents, with significant Florida-specific changes integrated throughout. More information on the FBC update process is available here.
The FBC estimates the 2010 state code is 5% more stringent than the 2007 code edition, or roughly 20% more stringent than the 2006 IECC. The changes to the 2010 code have been outlined in an FBC presentation.
