Much of the information presented in this summary is drawn from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Building Energy Codes Program and the Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP). For more detailed information about building energy codes, visit the DOE and BCAP websites.

Senate Bill 1182 of 2009 created the Oklahoma Uniform Building Code Commission. The 11-member Commission was given the power to conduct rulemaking processes to adopt new building codes. The codes adopted by the Commission must be approved by the Legislature before they can take effect. If the Legislature fails to act on the recommended code, it will take effect by default.

The Commission recommended a residential code based on the 2009 IRC with Oklahoma amendments in March 2011, and it took effect on July 15,2011. The Commission recommended a commercial code based on the 2009 IECC with Oklahoma amendments which took effect in November 2012.
