BUILDING CODES AND STANDARDS
Applicable Codes and Referenced Standards.
UFC 1-200-01, Design: General Building Requirements adopts the International
Building Code (IBC) as the code for the DoD for regulating and governing construction,
improvement, repair and maintenance of all military family housing facilities. UFC 3-
600-01, Design: Fire Protection Engineering for Facilities provides compliance criteria
for fire and life safety. Construct, improve, or repair military family housing that
conforms to the International Code Council's (ICC) definition of "One- and Two-Family
Dwellings" in compliance with the latest version of the International Residential Code
and this UFC. For military family housing located outside the US, compliance with local
codes and regulations will be IAW Status of Forces Agreements (SOFA) or other
international agreements. Equivalent substitutions may be authorized in foreign
locations where various elements of standards, construction methods, materials, and
equipment are regionally different than those in the US. The substitutions will need to
meet host nation codes.
Military criteria, other than those listed in this UFC, may be applicable to specific types
of structures, building systems, or building occupancies. Such structures--systems or
buildings--must meet additional requirements of applicable military criteria, such as:
Force Protection and Antiterrorism.
