This IS Code list is updated as on September 12, 2011 on engineeringcivil.com. We have tried to list all Indian Standard Codes for standardization in the field of Building Construction Practices, but might have missed a few. If you know any code which we have missed, just comment below and help us add it in this list.

sir ,what are the main points to build an economical structure and what kind of materials we should use

very good support to civil engrs.

This is good for civil engineers.

sir,can i get the details for concrete and its materials testing process updated my manually in working site with less cost machinery

Dear Sir,

Pl.tell the Importance of IS codes..

Dear Sir,

Please give refrence where i can get new IS code description for Fire Extinguishers in 2012??????
