They are complete, current, approved documents, not abridged in any way. CCB is published on a set of 8 CD-ROM discs, or a single DVD, updated twice a year. Most of this unique electronic construction library is also available, to subscribers only, on this website, updated continuously. However, reference standards from industry organizations, and other proprietary databases, are available only on the CCB discs.
