Mission Statement

The Building Code Commission (BCC) is tasked with protecting public health, safety and welfare by establishing our state's minimum standards of construction.

Safe structures are achieved through a combination of code-based design & construction practices, and an inspection process that ensures compliance with the established standards.

Model building codes provide the first and best line of defense against careless construction and sub-par materials which can lead to catastrophic structural failures.

However, model building codes don't only ensure building safety, they also establish uniformity in the industry which helps keep costs down; cost savings which are passed on to the end consumer - RI property owners.
