A plumbing engineer's life is surrounded by codes and standards. This chapter lists the majority of codes and standards used and referenced by the profession.

Codes and standards often cross paths to the point that it is difficult to understand the difference between a code and a standard. A code typically regulates a broad part of construction, whereas a standard regulates a very specific area or product. Codes often include installation, material, and approval requirements. Codes rely on standards and normally reference standards for specific materials or installation requirements. State, provincial, and local jurisdictions adopt codes to regulate construction. The standard only becomes a legally enforceable document when it is referenced in the adopted code. A code review is necessary to determine the appropriate standard.
