Building Officials Manual CoverBuilding Officials Manual

The revised Building Officials Manual is now posted on this website. 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. Licensees will also find answers to many questions in the Frequently Asked Questions appendix and in the text of the Manual. Because the manual is in electronic format, it will be updated as needed.

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