The IPC includes the International Private Sewage Disposal Code. Contractors can register their IPC code book and receive bonus content, including on-line errata distribution, excerpts of the acclaimed Significant Changes series, additional commentary, technical information and more. The IPSDC, a companion to the IPC, includes provisions for design, installation and inspection of private sewage disposal systems, and provides flexibility in the development of safe and sanitary systems. Many new updates provide the user with up-to-date documents ready for adoption or for revisions to existing codes.

The 2009 UPC and UMC were developed using the American National Standard Institute's consensus development procedures and are designed to provide consumers with safe and sanitary plumbing and mechanical systems while allowing latitude for innovation and new technologies.

Significant changes have been made to the UPC, including new requirements for the installation of non-water urinals, specific prescriptive requirements for the installation of temperature limiting devices for various fixtures, updates and revisions to the identification of potable and non-potable water systems, and complete modification and new requirements for gray water and reclaimed water systems.
