Citation Technologies and the International Code Council Partner to Develop New Web Portal

Updated System Will Allow for Online Access to Building Codes

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - October 14, 2008) - Citation Technologies, Inc. and the International Code Council (ICC) today announce a partnership to create a Web portal that allows efficient access to ICC's collection of international, state and legacy codes and standards for building safety and fire-prevention professionals. The updated system, Premium eCodes, will provide users a number of different formats, including downloadable PDFs, printable options and immediate access to codes and regulations online.

The new Premium eCodes software integrates codes and internal policies into a single, electronic format, which helps building professionals manage cost-saving and safety efforts. Safe buildings are achieved through proper design and construction practices in concert with a code administration program that ensures compliance. The ICC's programs establish uniformity in the construction industry, which allows materials manufacturers to conduct business on a larger scale and pass the savings along to the consumer.

This system update will transition the four-year-old software from the old folio format to the Web portal system and will contain the last three International coding and standards upgrades from 2006, 2003 and 2000, which include over 300 different documents. Premium eCodes will feature several tools, including a powerful index and search system, document comparison, annotation editor and other customizable options. Both members and nonmembers will be able to retrieve international, state and local adopted codes through Premium eCodes, thus providing a large population of architects, engineers, fire officials, contractors and the like, greater accessibility.
