Revisions and updates to the Building Officials Manual are nearing completion. Jointly authored and published by the Board of Engineers and Land Surveyors and the Board of Architectural Examiners, the manual is a valuable resource for code officials and plans examiners. Registrants will also find answers to many questions in the Frequently Asked Questions appendix and in the text of the Manual. It will be available on this website soon, and the Board will mail copies to each registered building official. Because the manual will now be available in electronic format, it will be updated as needed. Please continue to check this website for current information relative to Codes.

For timely information about codes adopted for use in South Carolina and notices of upcoming adoption procedures, see the Building Codes Council's website at Under "Board Information,” click on Building Codes information.
