The International Energy Codes are designed around different regions or "Climate Zones, see below).
All of South Carolina is in Climate Zone 3. This simplifies it somewhat by having a single statewide compliance code, especially for builders who don't have to reference different standards for different parts of the state. North Carolina, for example has 3 Climate Zones making it a bit more complicated for builders who construct new homes statewide, to have the knowledge to comply with the IECC.
An important thing to remember is that compliance is typically left up to the Building Codes Officials in each jurisdiction and some Building Codes Officials require full compliance and verification of things such as Duct Tightness Testing and Blower Door Testing and some don't.
On Jan.1 2013 South Carolina adopted the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). Prior to that South Carolina was using the 2006 IECC.
The IECC is typically published every 3 years, though there are some exceptions. Although the code is published every 3 years, it depends on the individual states on when or if they want to adopt the new code. An example is South Carolina adopted the 2009 IECC in January of 2013 and by that time the 2012 IECC had been published. At this time the 2015 IECC has already been published.
The most common trait in the adoption of these new energy codes is that even though they profess that the codes are "simplified," they are more stringent, adding some confusion and cost by typically requiring testing by third party entities to verify things such as duct leakage and envelope tightness testing or verification and increased costs for the application of measures such as air sealing that require more materials and labor.
