Where can I buy a code book?

First, determine which code book, or books, you need to purchase. The International Code Council (ICC) code series is extensive and covers all aspects of construction, new and existing.  Be sure to note the correct 'edition' that applies to your building project. Software versions of most model codes are now available.  You can purchase a code book directly from ICC www.iccsafe.org.

Building codes is currently operating under 2018 International Building and Residential Code series.

Copies of the currently adopted codes can be viewed (free of charge) at the Rutherford County Clerks Office or at the Building Codes Department during normal business hours.
