IRC 2006 Effective Date?

Can someone tell me when the following change took effect (R702.3.8 & R702.3.8.1)? Some information indicates after Jan 2006 green board was not to be used, but an inspector explained to me that it was a 2006 IRC change, but didn't go into effect until July 2007. My house was started March of 2006, finished December 2006 - and all showers have green board backing.

R702.3.8.1 Limitations. Water resistant gypsum backing board shall not be used where there will be direct exposure to water, or in areas subject to continuous high humidity.

This is just one of many problems I'm having, to include the builder connecting storm/driveway drains to my footing drains (which resulted in a totally flooded basement) and didn't install exterior concrete sealant on the walls of our daylight basement resulting in more leaks and total excavation of the house perimeter to seal the concrete.
