Rhode Island State Building & Fire Code Regulations

(Updated August 1, 2014)

Following are links to R.I. Building Code amendments and Fire Code regulations on file with the Office of the Secretary of State. Many of the Rhode Island Building Code amendments incorporate international or national codes by reference. This means you must refer to BOTH the international or national code (plus supplements, if any) AND the corresponding Rhode Island amendment below. International and national codes may be obtained directly from the International Code Council at 888-786-4452 or www.iccsafe.org. You may download and print any of the amendments free of charge for your reference purposes. If you wish to purchase only the R.I. Building Code amendments (the "blue pages") you may contact the Building Code Standards Committee at 401-222-4096. If you wish to purchase paper copies of the R.I. Building Code amendments along with the International Code, you may do so by contacting either the R.I. Building Officials Association at 401-647-9246 riboacodes@verizonmail.com or the R.I. Builders Association at 401-438-7400. Additionally, you may want to view Rhode Island General Law chapter 23-27.3 State Building Code


Certified copies must be obtained from the Administrative Records office at 401-222-2353.
