What Codes do we enforce?
The provisions of the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code (VUSBC) are based on nationally recognized model building and fire codes published by the International Code Council, Inc. The model codes are made part of the VUSBC through a regulatory process known as incorporation by reference. The VUSBC also contains administrative provisions governing the use of the model codes and establishing requirements for the enforcement of the code by the local building department.
