Seattle Fire Code

2015 Seattle Fire Code

The 2015 Seattle Fire Code is based on the International Fire Code. The 2015 SFC is comprised of the 2015 International Fire Code, adopted for use statewide by the State Legislature and the Washington State Building Code Council, along with local amendments approved by the Seattle Fire Code Advisory Board, Mayor and City Council. The City adopts new editions of the Seattle Fire Code every three years.

The 2015 Seattle Fire Code is now available for purchase in hard copy or PDF, or available for free review online.

In addition to the 2015 Fire Code, the City has now adopted 2012 versions of the Building, Existing Building, Residential, Plumbing, Energy, Mechanical, and Fuel Gas codes. Adopted versions of the rest of the 2015 building codes are available on the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections code pages.

Usage of the 2015 Seattle Fire Code became mandatory on January 1, 2017.
