Abstract:

This thesis examined and analyzed the International Conference of Building Officials ICBO who produces a public good, the Uniform Building Code. The Uniform Building Code is one of the three model building codes produced in the United States for use and adoption as a baseline building code for states and local municipalities. The process by which ICBO produces the Uniform Building Code was first examined and then several users of the code were examined to determine if ICBO produces this model code in sufficient quantity. The users examined were all from the State of California. It was determined that ICBO does produce the Uniform Building Code in sufficient quantity to its users.
