$ TRAINING WORKSHOP * Building Codes & Standards: Recent Changes & FEMA Policies
For many years FEMA has considered building codes a cornerstone of effective mitigation and the agency's strategic plans have included support for development and adoption of rigorous, risk-informed building codes and standards. This workshop will identify recently adopted significant changes in the I-Codes and ASCE 24 and changes coming in the 2018 edition of the I-Codes. We will explain how reliance on codes and standards is incorporated into FEMA policies and programs: Community Rating System; Hazard Mitigation grants (retrofit, reconstruction projects, elevation, code adoption, post-disaster enforcement); NFIP Floodproofing Certificate; and Public Assistance (for repair of damaged public buildings and facilities).
