The Code Council is releasing a series of documents. These documents outline important considerations and a set of potential solutions for code departments related to permitting, plan review, inspections and the codes. These resources follow from a recent Code Council survey that found that although 93 percent of surveyed code professionals continue to work during the crisis, many do not have the capacity to perform essential duties in a virtual work environment.
