drywall hanging question


what is the UBC requirement for hanging (screws) drywall?

Perimeter screw spacing? Field screw spacing? Different for 1/2" and 5/8"? Different for walls vs ceiling?

Thanks in advance.

It's listed on Table R702.3.5 - Application of Gypsum Board

This is with screws (Not nails - nail requirements are different):
