Review of 2009 International Building Code (IBC) - Accessibility

With the US DOJ release of the 2010 American's with Disabilities Act Standards, the State of Oregon must proceed with the adoption of a consistent standard such as the accessibility provisions of the 2009 IBC. This will establish a new baseline for providing minimum accessibility in the state. Accordingly, the Structural Code Committee is being asked to review and make a recommendation to the Building Codes Structures Board for the adoption of an amended version of the 2009 IBC with an effective date of January 1, 2012. The review will include but not be limited to the following:

  • Harmonization of required statutory amendments
  • Review of certain existing Oregon amendments
  • Review of new public proposals

2009 IBC Sections for review include:

  • Section 1007 - Accessible means of egress
  • Chapter 11 - Accessibility
  • Section 3411 - Accessibility for existing buildings

The Committee will also be reviewing:

  • ICC/ANSI A117.1 - Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities
