Building code


A building code is a set of ordinances or rules, as well as related standards, aimed at regulating aspects of structural design, construction, materials, alteration, and occupancy that are necessary to protect human safety and welfare, such as resistance to collapse and damage.

Technical and functional norms can both be found in building regulations. They should take into account lessons learned from other countries and be adjusted to national and local situations. For efficient execution of building codes, a systematic enforcement regime is a vital supporting element.
