2019-20 Regional Plumbing Code Book

The Plumbing Contractors Association of Greater Chicago (PCA) has once again produced its "one-of-a-kind" Regional Code Book featuring PLUMBING, ELECTRICAL & MECHANICAL CODE, and key contact information for over 300 municipalities. Ask almost any PCA contractor and they'll tell you it is clearly one of the best values offered by any contractor association!

The 2019-20 edition is a completely updated and revised REGIONAL CODE BOOK (which now includes Chicago and unincorporated Cook County codes) and is offered as a Premium Contractor Advantage benefit exclusively available to PCA contractors (at no cost), as well as local municipal inspectors working in our jurisdiction. If you recall, previous editions were only available on CD or hard copy. This year, however, the PCA decided to utilize a more efficient route by having the codebook accessible online.

The information gathered from respective building department personnel that make up our Regional Code Book includes:

  • Municipality’s name, address, website, and up-to-date contact information
  • Inspector’s name and contact information
  • Correct code used and approved amendments (if any)
  • Commercial and residential testing requirements
  • Special requirements for various materials
  • Additional remarks and other pertinent information

While searching this site, please note that each municipality has a separate “.PDF” file of its plumbing, electrical and mechanical information for access and download, as well as an “online flipbook” version to easily view all of the “.PDF” files at once. Make sure to bookmark this page or add a shortcut on your office staff computers, tablets, and smartphones to save time in the future. In addition,  please contact any inspectors or municipalities if there is missing information and urge them to complete and return the online codebook form to the PCA. Questions about the forms can be directed to Jeff Weiss at .

Once again, only PCA contractors and local municipal inspectors working in our jurisdiction will be granted full access to these documents each time they log-in on our website. If you have any questions about this Premium Contractor Advantage or your individual PCA membership, contact PCA Executive Director S.J. Peters at 312-563-9526 or e-mail him at .

Every effort has been made to ensure that this information is accurate and up-to-date. The PCA is not responsible for any omissions, errors, or revisions. If additional information is needed, please contact the municipality directly. This document is strictly private, confidential, and personal to its recipients and should not be copied, distributed, or reproduced in whole or in part, nor passed to any third party. Doing so will result in legal action against the offender.
