  Building code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A building code is a set of rules that specify the minimum acceptable level of safety for constructed objects such as buildings and nonbuilding structures.
Building codes are generally intended to be applied by architects and engineers, but are also used for various purposes by safety inspectors, real estate developers, contractors and subcontractors, manufacturers of building products and materials, insurance companies, facility managers, tenants, and other categories of users.
In some countries building codes are developed by the government agencies or quasi-governmental standards organizations and then enforced across the country by the central government.
