Getting a Code Book

Procedures for Obtaining Code Books

The Fire Prevention and Building Safety Commission creates Indiana codes by adopting model codes and amending them to apply in Indiana. These model codes are copyrighted documents so they cannot be placed on our website. However, there are two primary sources from which these model codes may be purchased.

  1. The International Code Council (ICC) can be contacted on-line at http://www.iccsafe.org/ and its toll-free number, 1-888-699-0541.
  2. Architectural Center Bookstore has a local phone number (317) 634-3871. It does not offer on-line sales.

The Indiana amendments to all codes are available on-line at http://www.state.in.us/legislative/iac/title675.html. Title 675 contains the amendments for each of the model codes adopted by the Commission. A listing of all of the current codes is at thethis link.

Some libraries have code books among their reference materials. Please contact your local library for research on code. Code Services will continue to answer only those questions about interpretation of the codes.
