Accessibility Code Update

May 13, 2009 at 4:12 PM

It has now been confirmed through multiple sources that the NC Accessibility Code (Volume 1-C) as we currently know it will cease to exist as of July 1st.

As of January 1, 2009, we have had the option of using either the 2006 NC Accessibility Code or the 2009 NC Building Code with the Accessibility requirements in Chapter 11 (and 10) and ANSI A117.  Come July 1st, the 2009 Code will be the only option.

The edition referenced in the 2009 NC Building Code is “ICC/ANSI A117.1-03.”  It can be purchased online at
