Internet Site Offers Instant Access to International Codes, Customized Options for Code Users
The 2006, 2003 and 2000 editions of the International Codes, standards and more than 300 related documents are now available on the Internet at www.eCodes.biz along with tools to support code users. Premium eCodes allows users to print, search, compare documents and even customize options to meet specific needs.
The web portal—developed by the International Code Council and Citation Technologies, Inc.—provides access to the Code Council’s collection of codes and standards for building safety and fire prevention professionals. Code Council members and nonmembers can select international, state and locally adopted codes and standards instantly online.
“Compliance is at the heart of absolutely everything we do, and increasing access to resources advances our entire building safety agenda,” said Code Council CEO Rick Weiland. “As a network of professionals defined not by traditional borders but by a shared commitment to saving lives and protecting property, we see this new product providing access to our codes and standards worldwide.”
The new Premium eCodes is cost-effective and integrates codes and standards into a single, online library format. Safe buildings are achieved through proper design and construction practices in concert with a code administration program that ensures compliance. The Code Council’s programs establish uniformity in the construction industry, which allows materials manufacturers to conduct business on a larger scale and pass the savings along to the consumer.
The International Code Council, a membership association dedicated to building safety and fire prevention, develops the codes used to construct residential and commercial buildings, including homes and schools. Most U.S. cities, counties and states that adopt codes choose the International Codes, building safety codes developed by the International Code Council. For more information, visit www.iccsafe.org.
