Delmar Issues 2012 ICC Code Books in eBook Format

Latest editions are now available for popular eReaders.

Delmar, part of Cengage Learning and a leading provider of learning solutions for ongoing career development and education, today announced the release of the updated 2012 code products published by the International Code Council (ICC). The codes developed by the ICC, referred to as the I-Codes, are a set of comprehensive, coordinated building safety and fire prevention codes that benefit public safety and support the industry’s need for one standard set of codes.

Cengage Learning will be distributing eBooks for nine of the 2012 I-Codes from the ICC which will be accessible via convenient and compact eReader devices. The portability of these devices will allow for building trades professionals to have these important code reference materials on-hand at all times on the job. The following 2012 I-Codes eBooks will be available:

  • 2012 International Residential Code
  • 2012 International Building Code
  • 2012 International Fire Code
  • 2012 International Plumbing Code
  • 2012 International Mechanical Code
  • 2012 International Fuel Gas Code
  • 2012 International Energy Conservation Code
  • 2012 International Swimming Pool Code
  • 2012 International Green Construction Code

“It’s been apparent over the years that the I-Codes are one of the most important resources for professionals within the building industry,” said Greg Clayton, vice president, Delmar.

“Even though the 2012 codes were just recently released, 67 percent of states are still actively using the 2009 I-Codes. We now have the unique ability to distribute this code information from the ICC in multiple formats – both in print and as eBooks – ensuring that professionals have all the information they need to remain code compliant, and can access and read the materials based on their own individual preferences.”

The ICC publishes updates to its I-Code series every three years. As with previous editions, Delmar will continue to be a leading distributor of the print versions of the I-Codes, including the recently released 2012 versions.

Up-to-date code information from popular titles such as the 2012 International Building Code and the 2012 International Residential Code, in addition to all other titles in the 2012 I-Code series, will continue to be readily available in print and distributed by Delmar.
