Codes and Standards, Part I, RETA Breeze 2023

Bill Lape discusses the two national “model” fire codes, the International Fire Code (IFC) and NFPA1 Fire Code, and two national “model mechanical codes, the International Mechanical Code (IMC) and the Uniform Mechanical Code (UMKC), that authorities having jurisdiction can adopt through government legislation.
