Building Code

Municipal or sometimes national ordinances governing the safe construction and renovation of buildings. A building code helps ensure that a building is not a hazard to people entering and leaving it, or to the broader public. For example, a building code may prohibit hazardous substances like asbestos from being used in construction. In general, building codes do not apply to existing buildings unless an addition or reconstruction is being done.
