BOCA Code is obsolete and hasn't existed since 1999.
BOCA and other major national model codes councils merged to form the International Codes Council
at that time and have been the premier nationwide model Code agency since.http://www.iccsafe.org
Nearly all US states now utilize the ICC codes statewide with a few minor exceptions.
You need to find out just what Code your state has adopted.
If the International Codes, you can purchase their codes books from the website above along with 'commentaries' that explain the intent of each Code.
Currently the ICC and National Plumbing Code are in negotiations to likewise merge.
My state, Pennsylvania, utilizes the plumbing provisions of the International Resdiential Code
or International Plumbing Code
