custom local building codes

Simplify how local amendments are incorporated into your I-Codes


Custom Local Building Codes (CLBC) can provide your municipality with an easy and efficient way to make local amendments to your International Codes (I-Codes).

Keep a local focus on the
I-Codes your community uses the most

If your state modifies the International Codes, they don’t reflect amendments your municipality makes at the local level. Our CLBC service integrates your local amendments into any or all of the 15 I-Codes to create your municipality’s own custom Codes.


Improve efficiency and transparency


We handle the work for you

Our codification team handles all of the details of creating your CLBC, saving your staff time so they can focus on other important business for your community.

We can publish your CLBC in a variety of customized, integrated formats including Digital Codes Premium, books or PDFs. We can also post links to your building code amendments in eCode360, our versatile online code portal.
