Effective July 1, 2011, the governing body of each county and municipality shall adopt, by ordinance, the state construction codes and each fire protection district shall adopt the state fire code. As of such date, all jurisdictions shall have the authority to adopt the construction codes by reference.

The state construction codes shall be administered by the construction code manager, a designee appointed by the Governor. The manager shall review and maintain the codes. However, the state fire code shall be administered by the State Fire Marshal. The construction code manager shall have the authority to promulgate and maintain the state construction codes and is required to work with the State Fire Marshal when promulgating the state fire code.
