What Is the Building Code?

The administrative code that is used throughout New Jersey is known as the Uniform Construction Code (U.C.C.). The U.C.C. adopts International and other National Code Books as the technical text for each discipline. A current listing of the adopted codes can be found in the link here: NJ State Codes and Regulations 

Addresses for these code books may be obtained from the Construction Inspection Division. You may also purchase copies at the local community college or visit your local library.
