Significant Changes to the 2006 International Fire Code

Jeffrey M. Shapiro

Pinpoint innovative technologies and materials and the most current approaches to fire safety, life safety, and fire prevention!

This "must-have" resource identifies the significant changes that occurred between the 2003 and 2006 Editions of the International Fire Code.

Coverage focuses squarely on those provisions that have special significance, are utilized frequently, or have had a change on the Code's application.

Not only does this approach assist users in identifying the specific Code changes that have occurred, it also aids readers in comparing the previous Code language to the new text, and most importantly, fosters an understanding of why the Code changed.


  • coverage follows the general layout of the International Fire Code, including Code sections and section number format, to allow for quick identification of the significant changes to the 2006 edition
  • each change is accompanied by either a photograph or an illustration to assist and enhance the reader's understanding of the specific change
  • offers a quick and accurate means for identifying and understanding the changes from the previous edition of the IFC and allows for an easy transition to the new Code
  • also useful as a valuable historical reference for years to come in reviewing how and when the Code has evolved
