New Web Page Added

You may notice a new link in the menu bar in the header. A new web page has been added. Every couple weeks, we will be adding to the page a new code modification or addition to the 2018 International Codes. South Carolina will switch to the 2018 codes series beginning January 1, 2019. Hopefully, this new section will help you with the transition to the new codes. Each code modification or addition will have a section at the end for comments. Post your comments so others can see and reply. Due to bots, comments will be reviewed and approved before they are made public.
