Missouri does not have a statewide building or energy code. Each local jurisdiction has the authority to adopt its own code. In most cases, local jurisdictions have adopted the Building Officials and Code Administrators (BOCA) International, National Building Code (NBC), although the western part of the state has adopted the International Conference Building Officials (ICBO), Uniform Building Code (UBC) and a few localities in the southeast use the Southern Building Code Congress, International (SBCCI) Standard Building Code (SBC).

Missouri General Assembly passed a bill that would allow the county commission of any county to adopt a building code subject to voter approval. In creating or amending such code, a calendar year 1999 or later edition of a nationally recognized building code must be adopted. (Section 64.180, RSMo).
