Overview The 2024 Ohio Existing Building Code is based on the 2021 International Existing Building Code (IEBC) with Ohio-specific amendments. This code provides regulations for the repair, alteration, change of occupancy, addition, and relocation of existing buildings, including historic buildings. It aims to ensure that any modifications to existing structures maintain or improve public safety, health, and general welfare without requiring full compliance with new construction standards.

Effective Date The 2024 Ohio Existing Building Code became effective on January 1, 2024.

Amendments The Ohio Board of Building Standards has incorporated several amendments to the 2021 IEBC to address specific needs and circumstances unique to Ohio. These amendments include modifications to structural provisions, fire safety requirements, and other state-specific regulations.
