The table below reflects the current status of approved building code rules. The process of approval begins at the State Building Code Council. After amendments to model codes are approved by the council, administrative rules are written for authorization by the Governor. After the State Code is authorized, state building construction shall be in compliance within 1 year. The four counties shall amend/adopt the Hawaii state building codes within two years. If a county does not amend/adopt within two years, the Hawaii state building codes become applicable as an interim county building code.
