    Neither, they are mostly local. There are some basic safety points that are statewide http://www.cbs.state.or.us/bcd/ http://www2.iccsafe.org/states/florida_codes/ etc, and a few that are federal for certain applications like the ADA that requires ramps and accessible bathrooms in public buildings.

    Local building codes and permits are the biggest enforcement of new and rebuilding construction. http://www.b4ubuild.com/links/codes.shtml “to provide minimum standards for the protection of life, limb, property, environment and for the safety and welfare of the consumer, general public and the owners and occupants of residential buildings regulated by this code.” However, it is important to keep in mind that building codes are adopted, modified and enforced by local politicians and government officials.”

    Building codes, business licenses, building permits, contractors licenses, and home improvement licenses are often issued and administered by state agencies. Building codes, business licenses, building permits, contractors licenses, and home improvement licenses are issued and administered by county agencies, as well.
