Codes/Standards


Applicable Building Codes for the State of Florida and the University of Florida

The 2010 Florida Building Code is now in effect. The Florida ADA code has not been published as of this date. The 2010 Florida Accessibility Code is not yet certified by the US Department of Justice as “substantially equivalent” to the federal ADA Standards for Accessible Design. The 2010 Florida Accessibility Code “the Code” was redeveloped based on the new federal ADA Standards for Accessible Design adopted by DOJ, September 15, 2010.

All permits shall clearly indicate the codes and standards used for the design of the project along with the appropriate edition year.

Plans that do not include this information will be rejected and the issuance of the Building Permit will be delayed until such information is recorded on the permit plans. It is not acceptable to list the codes, standards and edition years in the specifications. We do not archive the specifications and this information needs to be available for future reference.
