The International Code Council launched two online building code tools containing free information about building code usage in their communities.
The U.S. code adoption database is an interactive map that shares code adoption information at the state and local level. The database displays which codes are adopted within each state/jurisdiction, and provides context and links to access additional code information.
The database also contains a color-coded map for each of the 15 International Codes (I-Codes) showing statewide code adoptions around the U.S. The most current adoption information is maintained across the site through a collaboration effort between the Code Council, FLASH, and ISO.
The Global Building Codes Tool provides information about the building codes and standards used in countries around the world. Users may select a country from the world map to view information about the respective building safety regulation agencies and the building codes and standards referenced and enforced within that country.
