New Building Codes Go Into Effect Monday

New building codes adopted by the Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen earlier this month will go into effect Monday.

During the board's Jan. 10 meeting, aldermen approved on second reading an update to the 2012 International Code, as required by the State of Tennessee.

Prior to this update, the town's most recent building and fire codes were adapted from the 2006 International Code.

The code outlines commercial, residential, mechanical and plumbing regulations that must be followed to comply with state law.

The board voted on the change.

The Tennessee Code Annotated requires municipalities to update their building codes every seven years to the latest version.

Building Official Jeff Woods noted that, although the town needed to update its code in some ways to comply with state law, there are not many changes from the 2006 version to the 2012 version.

The biggest change, he said, was the addition of codes relating to in-ground swimming pools, which now require alarms and protective fencing.

Those changes pertain to commercial and private in-ground swimming pools. Above-ground pools are not dealt with in the code.

Woods said that anyone with questions about the code or changes to it may contact his office, located in Town Hall, by calling 639-7105.

Additionally, the International Code Council provides the public with access to the International Building Code, International Residential Code, International Mechanical Code, International Plumbing Code, International Fire Code and International Fuel Gas Code free of charge through the Code Council website, located at
