Like most large cities in the United States, Minneapolis has some specific regulations when it comes to roof fall protection. The Minnesota State Building Code was established in 1965 and has been the standard to protect citizens. In 2008, legislation established for the first time that the State Building Code supersedes all local regulations for the construction of buildings. The Minnesota Building Code has adopted the 2012 International Building Code.
The 2015 Minnesota Building Code regulates the design, construction, addition, alteration, repair, use and location of all buildings and structures other than those regulated by the 2015 Minnesota Residential Code. The IBC building code is incorporated in Minnesota Rules, chapter 1300. The rule adopts Chapters 2 through 33 and 35 of the IBC.
The code is administered by the state Department of Labor and Industry’s (DOLI) Construction Codes and Licensing Division (CCLD) in conjunction with cities, townships, and counties throughout the state.
