ICC codes are model codes that do not have the force of law until adopted by the authority having jurisdiction. The ICC codes have been adopted by many cities and states.

Even if your local building code is not based on the ICC codes, these code books are a valuable reference. Among other things, ICC is careful to reference only truly acceptable standards. Each book includes a complete bibliographic citation for each referenced standard, including the edition date that is applicable to that edition of the code.
