Analysis of Changes for the th 5 Edition (2014) of the Florida Codes Changes to the Florida Building Code, Building This Analysis of Changes for the 5th Edition (2014) of the Florida Codes is intended to provide a comprehensive comparison of the provisions in the 2010 Florida Building Code, Building (FBCB) and the 5th Edition (2014) of the Florida Building Code, Building. The 2009 International Building Code was the base code for the 2010 FBCB. The 2012 International Building Code is the base code for the 5th Edition (2014) of the FBCB. As a result of changing the base code and Florida-specific amendments, certain provisions and criteria of the code have changed. This Analysis will serve a useful tool to facilitate the transition to the new code. This Analysis is arranged so that comparable provisions in the two codes can be easily located. The left two columns contain section numbers and a brief overview of the corresponding requirements from the 2010 FBCB. The next two columns contain section numbers and a brief overview of the corresponding requirements in the 5th Edition (2014) of the FBCB. The far right column contains a brief analysis or comment on the differences between the provisions. This Analysis is not intended to replace or interpret the provisions contained in either the 2010 FBCB or the 5th Edition (2014) of the FBCB. This information simply points out the differences. The Analysis is not designed to be used without the aid of the representative code books, as all the details pertaining to a specific section may or may not be provided. However, this Analysis will provide an easy means for identifying differences in the two codes, as well as enabling the user to locate issue specific provisions in the 5th Edition (2014) of the FBCB by means of a numbered section cross reference. This Analysis provides a cross-reference for the majority of the sections that changed in the 5th Edition (2014) of the FBCB. In some cases, sections were grouped together due to substantial differences. This grouping enables the extent of the differences to be more readily identified. Notable changes deemed to be the most significant or to have the greatest impact have been highlighted in yellow. Note: Seismic loading and snow loading provisions in the code are no longer reserved (deleted) in the 5th Edition (2014) of the FBCB, even though they do not apply in the State of Florida. While they are technically new sections and provisions to the Florida Codes, they are not shown here in this Analysis because they do not apply to construction in the State of Florida.

Analysis The term “movement“ has been changed to “relocation”. Section split into two sections for clarity and for coordination with new Section 102.4.2. New section that expands upon the requirements in Section 102.4.1 by making it clear that, even if a referenced standard contains requirements that parallel the FBCB, the provisions of the FBCB will always take precedence. New section (from Section 553.79(17) Florida Statutes) prohibiting the condition of issuing a one- or two-family residential permit on the inspection of any portion of a building, structure, or real property that is not directly impacted by the construction, erection, alteration, modification, repair, or demolition of the building, structure, or real property for which the permit is sought.

Section deleted. Exception for panic and fire exit hardware for residential and commercial swimming pools has been deleted. Section 1009 (including many other sections throughout the code) has been revised to coordinate and clarify the provisions for unenclosed interior stairways and ramps that can be used as a portion of the means of egress. Revisions are primarily a clarification. The term exit enclosure has been deleted. The terms “interior exit ramp, interior exit stairway, exit access ramp, and exit access stairway” have been added to clarify the enclosure requirements. The changes are based on the following concepts: - All stairs within a building are elements of the means of egress system and must comply with Chapter 10 - Unenclosed stairways are not exits - All exit stairways must be enclosed with a fir-resistance-rated enclosure - Exit access stairways may be open unless enclosure is required based

on shaft provisions Exit access travel distance is measured to an entrance to an exit - Exit access travel distance includes the travel distance on exit access stairways - Entrances to exits on each story are not mandatory and access to exits on other stories is permissible within certain limitations Section deleted. Revised to clarify that landing width is measured perpendicular to the line of travel. Exception for one- and two-family dwellings permitting a door at the top of a stair to open direct at a stair has been deleted. Section deleted. New exception to the maximum vertical rise of a flight of stairs has been added for spiral stairways used as a means of egress from technical production areas.
