    Georgia State Amendments to the State Minimum Standard Codes

    The International Building Code (IBC) was adopted in Georgia with an effective date of 2002. The 2006 edition of the IBC was adopted on January 1, 2007 and ACEC Georgia, in collaboration with SEAOG, proposed guidelines that were included in the Georgia Amendments to the 2006 IBC. The Guidelines and individual forms are available on SEAOG's website.  

    Below is a link to the Georgia State Amendments to the State Minimum Standard Codes guidelines that have been adopted or which are being considered for adoption by the Department of Community Affairs.


    ACEC Georgia, along with SEAOG and others, continues to be a major stakeholder in reaching a consensus for the adoption of amendmentments to the IBC and other regulations affecting design and construction of structures and the built environment.
