Because Kansas is a home rule state, the responsibility for adoption and enforcement of building energy codes lies with local jurisdictions. The Energy Division conducted a survey of selected cities and counties in 2016. The results are summarized in the 2016 Kansas Building Codes Summary.

Although local jurisdictions maintain authority for codes adoption and enforcement, the State has adopted the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) as the applicable state standard for new commercial and industrial structures (see K.S.A. 66-1227). For new homes, the State requires homebuilders and realtors to disclose certain energy-efficiency information, using the Kansas Energy Efficiency Disclosure form (see KSA 66-1228).
