If you know you will only be needing a specific code then the loose leaf format allows you the freedom to only take what you need instead of being restricted to a standard book-binding format. Every three years the International Code Council (ICC) revises their international code series. It is extremely important to keep up to date with the newest changes and additions in code in order to keep your business running smoothly and provide your and your employees with the best safety possible. Some of the changes included in the 2018 code are:

- Appliance shutoff valves that are located behind movable appliances are now considered to be provided within the required access.
- Changes to plastic vent pipe material which now needs to be labeled as complying with the standards for that specific pipe material.
