The City of Orange Beach is moving to the 2018 Edition of the International Code Series on January 1, 2019.

“This is an update to the latest edition of the International Code Series, the 2018 Edition,” said Orange Beach Building Official and Floodplain Manager Lannie Smith. “These Codes are published every three years; however, this is Orange Beach’s first update since the 2012 edition.  The design criteria has not changed nor have the requirements of the Coastal Construction Supplement.”

The new 2018 I-Codes can be found online at https://codes.iccsafe.org/public/collections/I-Codes. Hard copies are available for reference at Community Development, City Hall and the Orange Beach Library.
