The International Code Council and General Code announce merger with codification company Coded Systems
The merger will provide expanded product offerings and digital solutions to code officials, municipal planners and zoning officials in New Jersey and beyond

Washington, D.C. – The International Code Council announced that as of July 1, New Jersey-based Coded Systems has merged with General Code, a member of the Code Council family of solutions. The merged companies, operating as General Code, will support the growing needs of code officials, municipal planners and zoning officials by providing expanded product offerings and digital solutions.

Prior to the merger, Coded Systems and General Code were individually the two largest codification companies in New Jersey. Led by Michelle Wood whose father founded the company, Coded Systems has been an established and highly respected codification services provider in the state for over 49 years.

“Coded Systems shares our passion for customer service excellence and quality codification services,” says General Code Chief Operating Officer Lynn Martin. “This merger allows us to combine the strengths of both companies and offer more robust services to our clients in New Jersey and nationwide.”

General Code currently provides quality code content, digital access and codification and zoning services to municipalities in 28 states and Canada. General Code focuses on providing its clients with the best user experience through the development and production of industry-leading digital solutions including eCode360 and MapLink. The company joined the Code Council family of solutions in November 2017.

Michelle Wood will join General Code as Solutions Account Executive, where she will continue working with code clients to provide codification and other related services.

“We could not be more excited to merge with General Code and to join the companies that make up the Code Council family,” said Wood. “I look forward to what we will accomplish together as we build solutions to support growing communities in our client states.”
