The city of Pasadena, TX, voted on March 4 to adopt NFPA 5000(tm), Building Construction and Safety Code(tm), which will become effective 90 days from that date. NFPA 5000 is the first building code to be developed through a process accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and is a key element of the Comprehensive Consensus Codes(tm) (C3), the first full, integrated set of codes and standards developed through ANSI-accredited processes.
