The 2014 National Electrical Code was adopted by the State of Colorado effective July 1, 2014. The City and County of Broomfield started enforcing this new edition on the same date. We have compiled a list of changes likely to affect residential construction in this 2014 NEC Residential Change Handout.

The City and County of Broomfield has adopted the 2012 International Codes.

On Tuesday, February 11, 2014 the Broomfield City Council passed an ordinance adopting the 2012 ICC code package with an effective date of March 15, 2014.  This means that all permits issued as of March 15, 2014 will need to have plans designed, reviewed, and approved by the Building Division to meet the 2012 Codes.  This will include the architectural plans, structural framing plans, structural foundation plans, soils reports, roof truss plans, and energy code documents.  Attached is a short summary of significant changes from the 2009 to the 2012 codes.

Please see the Adoption Ordinance #1994 to see changes from the current Broomfield Municipal Code.
