2014 Arkansas Energy Code Survey
The 2014 Arkansas Energy Code for New Building Construction establishes minimum energy requirements for residential and commercial buildings in the State of Arkansas. The Arkansas General Assembly authorized the Arkansas Energy Office to promulgate these regulations in Section 3(B) (2) (c) of Act 1981. These rules and regulations are in adherence with the Administrative Procedures Act.
For residential buildings, the new code, based on the 2009 Edition of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC 2009), went into effect on January 1, 2015.
Enforcement in jurisdictions that have adopted the code is done by the local government through the municipalities established inspection process. Depending on the size of the local government, the same individual may be responsible for performing plan reviews and inspections.
