Building Codes, Full Text Copies of Building Codes

This section of this page provides downloadable PDF copies of various building codes & standards. We also provide contact information for various building code & standard agencies. For a current or previous version of the model building codes or standards you can and should usually purchase an electronic copy from the code or standard agency directly.

Because various states or provinces also have adopted versions of the model codes, often a copy of these is available from the state or province at no charge.

Tip: use your browser's on-page search feature (CTRL-F or on a Mac CMD-F) to look for one or two keywords narrowing your interest, such as "septic" that will find septic system design codes & guidelines. Or use the InspectApedia page top or bottom SEARCH BOX to find articles including codes on a specific topic.
