The 2015 IPMC is the most up-to-date nationally recognized model code, which governs the maintenance of existing buildings. Included are clear and specific property maintenance requirements for building, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and fire protection systems in existing residential and onresidential structures and their premises.
