UCC Code Online
The Department of Community Affairs has decided that the Uniform Construction Code, N.J.A.C. 5:23, will be an online publication only. Effective immediately, hard copy Uniform Construction Code books and subscription services for printed updates to the construction code are no longer available for purchase. We believe that this change in delivery of the construction code to a full online publication will serve all code users more effectively and efficiently.
On its website, the Division of Codes and Standards provides an online copy of the Uniform Construction Code by subchapter. The online text is updated regularly to ensure that all newly adopted rules are incorporated. In addition, an online version of the Uniform Construction Code (UCC) Act is available, and the Division posts rulemaking activity to provide code users with comprehensive information on proposals and notices of adoption that impact the construction code. All documents can be searched and printed.
To access the online copy of the UCC, UCC Act, rule proposals and notices of adoption from the Division of Codes and Standards’ website, go to: https://www.nj.gov/dca/divisions/codes/codreg/ucc.html hllps://www.nj.gov/dca/divisions/codes/codreg/rule proposals adoptions.html
In addition, the New Jersey Office of Administrative Law and LexisNexis provide free online public access to the New Jersey Administrative Code. The public access site for the Administrative Code is updated semi-monthly. The Code can be browsed, searched, and printed.
