The Code Advisory Board provides advice and assistance to the Commissioner in the administration of the Uniform Construction Code. 

There are 15 members designated by statute (N.J.S.A. 52:27D-125)—four are public members that are not designated to represent a specific interest group.  However, of the four undesignated public members, two now represent specific interest groups—one member represents elevator inspectors and chairs the Elevator Safety Subcode Committee; the other represents technical assistants who manage the local code enforcement offices and assist construction officials in the administration of the Uniform Construction Code.  The other 11 members hold designated seats as follows:  licensed fire prevention inspector; public member representing people with disabilities; licensed professional engineer (mechanical);  licensed electrical inspector; architect; licensed professional engineer (structural); public health official; builder; municipal building official; public member representing consumers; and licensed plumbing inspector. These seats are appointed by the Commissioner and the terms are for four years; the membership list follows:
