Generally they update every three years, the 2012 IRC is already out.
Depending on your state or locality, they will initiate a change to their codes based on their desire to.
I am sure some states have changed their codes to be based on the newer 2012 codes but not here in California yet, which is a little odd as they seem to change every three years.

Re: New Deck Code

The review process for the 2015 IRC is under way.
Bitchn about what we have now in 09? Don't like what's coming at us in '12?
Wait till '15 hits us.

Tis the name of the game now I guess...
