The International Code Council recently launched its eCodes[R] Online Subscription Service, which allows subscribers to download various building codes in the Adobe eBook Reader format. Members can search through the codes, highlight passages, make annotations and create bookmarks.

Some of the building codes included are the International Building Code, the International Residential Code, the International Plumbing Code, the International Mechanical Code, the International Energy Conservation Code, the International Private Sewage Code, and the New York State Code.

ICC intends to release more eCodes in the future. For more information, visit or call 205/591-1853, ext. 268.
