Colorado State Certification of Commercial and Residential Building Energy Codes

The State of Colorado provides the following information to certify compliance with Title III of the Energy Conservation andProduction Act (ECPA) of 1976, as amended. As the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recognizes, the State of Colorado, as a long-term "home-rule" state has no statewide jurisdiction for the adoption and compliance with the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and ASHRAE 90.1-2007 at the local jurisdiction level. However, the State of Colorado, based on the demonstrated adoption and enforcement of the 2009 IECC and ASHRAE 90.1-2007 at the local jurisdiction level, fully meets the intent of the compliance requirements of the ECPA concerning energy codes.

In addition, the State of Colorado., within its jurisdictional authority, ahs adopted the 2012 IECC for low-rise residential buildings, as well as ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010 for nonresidential buildings.
