Doesn't make sense to me to have "codes" that everyone is expected to meet and then keep them "secret" unless you pay...but this isn't the first time something hasn't made sense to me and probably won't be the last.
I listen to a LOT of podcasts. One interviewed the then head of the ABYC (no idea if he's still there). At the time he said the same thing you did and said publicly that if you sign up for the free trial period you can download the regs for free. He encouraged people to do it. I did and downloaded a bunch of documents. If you PM me your email address I will zip them up and send them to you. They are dated 2011 so I don't know if anything has changed. I have no idea how often they get updated.
