RB129-16 – Moves Fire Sprinkler Mandate to Appendix – This proposed code change will modify Section R313 of the International Residential Code by moving the residential fire sprinkler requirements for one- and two- family dwellings and townhouses to a new optional appendix and thus fire sprinklers will not be required in houses or townhomes unless the Appendix is adopted at the state or local level.
