Florida Building Code has been postponed

Important notice

The effective date for the 2007 Florida Building Code has been postponed to March 1, 2009.

This is to let you know that at the September 15, 2008 conference call meeting, the Florida Building Commission decided to postpone the effective date of the 2007 Florida Building Code from December 31, 2008 to March 1, 2009.

The purpose of the delay was to provide additional time [due to cancellation of the August 2008 meetings] necessary to review and take action on the proposed glitch code changes and to allow both the glitch code change supplement including the 15% increase in energy efficiency of buildings and the first edition of the 2007 Florida Building Code to go into effect at the same time as planned.
