International Building Code
Chapter 51-50 WAC
Effective July 1, 2016
Authority: The International Building Code (Chapter 51-50 WAC) is adopted by the Washington State Building Code Council
pursuant to Chapters 19.27 and 70.92 RCW. These codes were first adopted by reference by the Washington State Legislature in
1974. In 1985, the Legislature delegated the responsibility of adoption and amendment of these codes to the State Building Code
Code Precedence: The State Building Code Act, Chapter 19.27 RCW, establishes the following order of precedence among the
documents adopted as parts of the State Building Code:
International Building Code, Standards and amendments -WAC 51-50;
International Residential Code, Standards and amendments - WAC 51-51;
International Mechanical Code, Standards and amendments - WAC 51-52;
International Fire Code, Standards and amendments - WAC 51-54A;
Uniform Plumbing Code, Standards and amendments - WAC 51-56
Where there is a conflict between codes, an earlier named code takes precedence over a later named code. In the case of conflict
between the duct insulation requirements of the International Mechanical Code and the duct insulation requirements of the
Energy Code, the Energy Code, or where applicable, a local jurisdiction's energy code, shall govern.
Where, in any specific case, different sections of this Code specify different materials, methods of construction or other
requirements, the most restrictive shall govern. Where there is conflict between a general requirement and a specific requirement,
the specific requirement shall be applicable.
Organization and Numbering: These rules are written to allow compatible use with the International Building Code. All
sections which are amended, deleted, or added are referenced.
Enforcement: The State Building Code Act requires that each local jurisdiction enforce the State Building Code within its
jurisdiction. Any jurisdiction can contract with another jurisdiction or an inspection agency to provide the mandated enforcement

procedures and criteria are found in Chapter 51-04 WAC. The Council has exempted from its review any amendments
to the administrative provisions of the various codes.
Forms for proposing statewide amendments to the State Building Code are available from the State Building Code

series of codes.
