Visit our new 2018 Seattle Building Code website! We’re currently working on amendments for the 2018 Seattle Building Code, Residential Code, Existing Building Code, Fire Code, Plumbing Code, Mechanical Code, Electrical Code, Boiler Code, and Elevator Code. Amendments under current review are those adopted by the WA State Building Code Council, current amendments of the 2015 Seattle Codes continuing in the 2018 Codes, and newly proposed changes from various stakeholders.
Public review and discussion of amendments occur at the regularly scheduled Construction Code Advisory Board (CCAB) meetings. The current CCAB schedule is located on the CCAB Website.
Our goal is to align with the State Code’s effective date, with implementation of the 2018 Seattle Codes effective July 1, 2020. Current State Code amendments are available for review on the State Building Code Council’s website.
