Codes & Standards
International Fire Code

The Fire Marshal Division enforces the 2015 International Fire Code, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes and standards referenced in the IFC or as adopted by the State of South Carolina, and various City ordinances.

The City of Charleston adopted the International Code Council "family" of codes, as approved by the South Carolina Building Code Council, for enforcement within the City.

The quick links (lower right of the screen) are intended as a reference to some of the adopted codes and standards and provide free access to most of the documents. The Charleston Fire Department does not administer these sites and makes no representation to the accuracy of the information. Code research should include ensuring the most recently adopted version is reviewed as well as validating the source of the information.
