2013 Kentucky Building Code Now in Effect

At the Board of Housing Buildings and Construction (HBC) meeting on Aug. 15, 2013, General Counsel Michael Davis announced that the 2013 Kentucky Building Code was effective August 2, 2013. However, the date for mandatory compliance has been extended from October 1, 2013, to January 1, 2014. 

The Kentucky Amendments to the 2012 IBC, which along with the IBC make up the KBC, are now posted on the HBC web site. There is still the possibility that the Code Administrators Association of Kentucky (CAAK) will sponsor the printing of the KBC as an integrated document, as was done for the 2002, eliminating the need to insert the amendments into the IBC.  View/Download 2013 Kentucky Building Code.
