Maryland Building Rehabilitation Code

The Maryland Building Rehabilitation Code Program encourages private investment in existing buildings and communities through a new construction code that streamlines and harmonizes the code requirements for rehabilitation work. The Building Rehabilitation Code became effective on June 1, 2001, and applies to buildings of all types over one year old.

Based on the recommendations of the Advisory Council members, the Secretary has adopted by regulation the 2015 International Existing Building Code (IEBC) as the Maryland Building Rehabilitation Code. The 2015 IEBC became effective on April 11, 2016.
