This report was prepared to support the analysis of building and fire codes and practices of the National Institute of Standards and Technology World Trade Center (WTC) Investigation. The report provides a comparison and summary of significant differences between the 1968 Building Code of the City of New York (determined to be the current building code at the time of construction of WTC 1 and WTC 2) and the provisions of the 2003 (current) edition of the Building Code of the City of New York.
