Amendments to the Building Codes
The building codes are published to meet the needs of local jurisdictions charged with enforcement of building standards of construction and use, and are updated on a three year cycle to reflect the latest standards of life-safety and construction technology. The amendments to the building codes are adopted by City Council to modify the codes to conform to the particular physical and political conditions of our City. The code adoption process is an open discussion with the community, and input is always solicited from all citizens and interested parties.
2006 family of codes adopted July 10, 2007 and went into effect September 1, 2007 including the International Building Code (IBC), the International Residential Code (IRC), the International Mechanical Code (IMC) and the 2005 National Electrical Code (NEC). The city adopted amendments to those codes are posted below.

If you work in Scottsdale and have become familiar with the 2003 amendments, you'll find the 2006 amendments are basically the same, or amendments have been eliminated.
