The Colombian Building Code (NSR-10) is based on a conglomeration of international building codes, primarily Spanish codes. The Ministry of Housing, City and Territory has oversight of the code and is in the process of updating it to the NSR-20, which will contain more references to the 2018 International Building Code and U.S.-developed international standards.
The Colombian Plumbing Code (NTC-1500) is based in part on the 2009 International Plumbing Code. It is also under review and being updated by ICONTEC, the Colombian standardization body. The NTC-1500 can be purchased from ICONTEC or viewed in read-only mode.
