Maryland State Certification of Commercial and Residential Building Energy Codes

By legislation, the Maryland Building Performance Standards (MPBS) which was adopted in 1994 is updated every three years to coincide with the International Code Council (ICC) change cycle, as the ICC updates their I-codes. The MBPS adopted the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code and ASHRAE 90.1-2010 on January 1, 2012. Maryland legislation requires the State of Maryland to adopt the first printing of the latest International Building Code, International Residential Code and the International Energy Conservation Code within one year of publication by the ICC.
