Spanish term or phrase: Reglamento de Construcción
Even though I know it may be translated at Construction Regulations, I feel Building Regulations is more appropriate. This is a manual to be given to owners of land in a private residential area, as a guide for building their homes. Which term is more accurate? Construction or Building Regulations? Thank you.

Building Code/Regulations

Normalmente se denomina "Building Code" en USA, pero "Regulations" también es muy aceptable y creo que preferible si se trata de un reglamento por convenio y no por ley (falta ese CONTEXTO).
