Quick Guide to NFPA 101 / NFPA 5000 Occupancy Types vs. IBC Occupancy Groups

Blog Post created by tracyvecchiarelli Employee on Feb 24, 2017

Part of my job includes answering questions from NFPA members on our codes and standards. Since many jurisdictions adopt a combination of NFPA and IBC codes, I often get questions about NFPA requirements, but in IBC terms. This quick guide I created helps me remember which IBC groups correspond to the NFPA 101 occupancy types and vise versa. Hope it's helpful to you too!
