The updated 2010 Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code (Uniform Code) and the Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State (ECCCNYS) became effective statewide. Originally approved in April 2010 by the State Fire Prevention and Building Code Council, a notice of adoption was published in the September 29 edition of the State Register. The updated Uniform Code is based on the 2006 International family of codes, and the
2010 ECCCNYS will be based on the 2009 IECC and ASHRAE
