CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — Delmar, part of Cengage Learning, has announced the creation of seven eBooks from the codes published by the International Code Council (ICC). Referred to as the I-Codes, they are a set of comprehensive, coordinated building safety and fire prevention codes.

Professionals working in the building industry now have digital access to these codes. As a distributor of print code manuals through an ongoing partnership with the ICC, Delmar will now be providing eBook versions of the following:

• 2009 International Residential Code®

• 2009 International Building Code®

• 2009 International Fire Code®

• 2009 International Plumbing Code®

• 2009 International Mechanical Code®

• 2009 International Fuel Gas Code®

• 2009 International Energy Conservation 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 distribute print versions of the I-Codes, including the recently released 2012 versions.
