Standard is a set of rules based on some principle or procedure to perform task, design, and others. IS codes for civil engineering free download pdf are given below.

Standards also include technical Specification and sometimes restricts to be on the safe side. The codes act as a discipline to be followed while doing particular tasks so that it is compatible with the site condition others.

IS codes for civil engineering free download pdf - All Codes Used

Every country should have its own set of codes and standards. Some of the popular codes in the field of civil engineering are British code, American code.

Is codes are quite compatible for us though quite a modification is done in here to suit site conditions. IS codes are codes developed by the Indian authority Bureau of Indian standards to maintain quality of work, standardization and to serve as a guide in every field. Here is a list of Is Code in the field of Civil Engineering. These codes get updates time and again according to the need of time.

Here IS stands for Indian standards and the letter before the colon (:) is the unique number for codes followed by the year on which it was prepared.  These codes can be downloaded from the internet or directly from the website of BIS. /www.bis.gov.in/
