About the OUBCC
The Oklahoma Uniform Building Code Commission (OUBCC) was created by the Legislature in 2009 to develop state-wide minimum building codes for residential and commercial construction. These codes ensure that all construction (residential and commercial) in the state is safe and healthy for the of citizens and visitors to the State of Oklahoma.
The OUBCC has adopted nationally recognized base-model codes with modifications through the state's rulemaking process. All jurisdictions in the state of Oklahoma have the ability to adopt these minimum codes for their area. These jurisdictions may also adopt codes that are more restrictive.
If you are planning to build in Oklahoma, it is a good idea to check with the jurisdiction in which you plan to construct your building and find out what their requirements are. If those requirements have been sent to the OUBCC, they are listed on our website under the "Jurisdiction" tab.
