In 1994, the common code format was introduced to the
Uniform Building Code
(UBC), preparing for the consolidation of the threemodel building codes (BOCA’s
National Building Code
, ICBO’s
Uniform Building Code
and SBCCI’s
Standard Building Code
) into asingle model building code. After years of drafting and over four pub-lic hearings, this consolidation has been realized in the publication of the
2000 International Building Code
(IBC).Each existing model building code was considered as primary sourcedocuments for the IBC. As in any code development cycle, the currentcode forms the basis for the new edition. This is no different with theevolution from the 1997 UBC to the 2000 IBC. The purpose of this doc-ument is to provide an analysis comparing the 1997 UBC with the2000 IBC.The intent of this publication is to provide useful information to assistthe code user in the transition from the structural provisions of the1997 UBC to the 2000 IBC. The first part of this book provides a com-parative analysis between the two codes. The second part is a crossreference directory.
Comparative Analysis
Similar to past “analyses of revision” published by ICBO, the compara-tive analysis is arranged in sequence based on the new edition. The2000 IBC sections, tables and figures are listed sequentially for thestructural provisions with an analysis of comparison to the 1997 UBC.This will provide a concise report that may be used to transition fromthe 1997 UBC to the 2000 IBC, facilitating in the adoption of the newcode. This comparative analysis may also be used as a plan checkingand field inspection aid to ensure a better understanding of the latestrevisions to the building code.If commentary on a particular section is not provided, a differencebetween codes may or may not exist. This document is not intended toidentify every difference in the text or requirements. Analyses of theprovisions is provided with details supplied on many sections, espe-cially those reflecting a greater change.
Cross Reference Directory
While the common code formatting effort in 1994 generally alignedthe format of the Uniform and International Codes, provisions are notnecessarily aligned section by section. The cross reference directory isdesigned to assist the code user familiar with the structural portionsof the 1997 UBC and transition them to the 2000 IBC.The directory is divided into two parts. The first part, the 1997 UBCto 2000 IBC tables, assists code users in locating new 2000 IBC sec-tion numbers for similar provisions found in the 1997 UBC. The sec-ond part, the 2000 IBC to 1997 UBC tables, assists code users in locat-ing source sections of the 1997 UBC for similar provisions found in the2000 IBC.Cross reference tables are arranged in sequence based on the firstcode. The 1997 UBC to 2000 IBC table sequentially lists sections,tables and figures from the 1997 UBC and their counterpart in the2000 IBC. Similarly, the 2000 IBC to 1997 UBC table sequentiallylists sections, tables and figures from the 2000 IBC and the corre-sponding location in the 1997 UBC.
