The International Code Council recently launched two online building code tools that aim to give access to free information about building code usage to safety professionals and the public.

“Building codes represent a highly cost-effective strategy to help protect communities from the risks posed by natural and man-made events,” said ICC Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “We are very excited to launch these two databases that provide important code information that is useful to all community stakeholders.”

ICC partnered with the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes and the Insurance Services Office to create the U.S. Code Adoption Database, which is an interactive map that shares code information at the state and local levels. The database also contains a color-coded map for each of the 15 International Codes.

In addition, the ICC has launched the Global Building Codes Tool, which provides information about the codes and standards around the world, also via an interactive map. Here, users can view information about respective building safety regulation agencies in addition to the codes themselves.

The latter tool was primarily designed to help manufacturers and designers who are interested in exporting their products to different countries and also represents “a key component of the Code Council’s Strategic Partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce International Trade Administration,” according to the Council.
