MA Energy Code Concurrency Period Ends

The concurrency period had allowed building permit applicants to choose to have designs comply with the provisions with either the 2015 or 2018 editions of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), with Massachusetts amendments. As of November 7, 2020, the concurrency period has ended. The ending of the concurrency period means that all designs submitted for permit must now be in accordance with the 2018 MA Energy code provisions as laid out in the revised 780 CMR Section 13.00.


See our previous blog posts here on the timeline of the Board of Building Regulations and Standards Committee’s actions regarding the Energy code concurrency period extensions.
