Mission Statement

To encourage innovation and economy in construction and to provide requirements for construction and construction materials consistent with nationally recognized standards.

To permit to the fullest extent feasible to use of modem technical methods, devices, and improvements, including premanufactured systems, consistent with reasonable requirements for the health, safety, and welfare of occupants or users of buildings and structures.

To eliminate restrictive, obsolete, conflicting, and unnecessary construction regulations that tend to unnecessarily increase construction costs or retard the use of new materials, products, or methods of construction, or provide preferential treatment to types or classes of materials or products or methods of construction.
