[Last updated 12-28-11 with additional clarification to this footnote added 1-23-13. *Added comments in brackets [ ] that codes/standards were updated by "equivalency". This is allowed by NFPA 101, 2009 edition, Section 1.4, and then also see comment #3 in the hardcover handbook, part of which reads, "...future editions of the Code are considered refinements of earlier editions because they clarify intent with respect to the revised topics. Use of a newer edition in its entirety should be considered as equivalent to use of an earlier edition." The formal legislative approval of the rulemaking process is not scheduled before sometime in 2013, but in the meantime through equivalency we can use the newer codes/standards. Any part of the newer code or standard that has new requirements over the older edition and that would incur a significant cost increase to the client is a section that is not equivalent and therefore such sections cannot be adopted without legislative approval. Previously updated 4-21-11. Change was to add the word "Codes" in the title. Previous to that the latest change was July 2009]
