Code Official Digitization and Efficiency Support Program

The Code Official Digitization and Efficiency Support (CODES) project, led by the International Code Council and other industry organizations, aims to modernize building code implementation through a transition to electronic code enforcement processes, with a primary focus on resource-constrained municipalities. Through stakeholder input, the program will identify and address implementation barriers and provide training resources to support workforce development in code enforcement.

CODES Project Goals

The CODES project will provide a digitization roadmap with tiered solutions for transitioning to electronic processes in code administration and enforcement. The long-term impact includes improved efficiency, increased adoption of digital tools and enhanced compliance with energy codes, leading to safer, more resilient and energy-efficient communities.

The project will also deploy identified technologies in pilot communities located in rural New York State, focusing on critical metrics such as permitting and plan review times.
