Are you talking joists or the actual board decking?

If you are talking anything structural, yes there is a code for fasteners etc..

Deck boards on top of joists, you can use whatever you want.

Cole is right.

There are a variety of ways to attach deck boards over the joists, including nails, screws, hidden fastener brackets, etc....

All are allowable as there are no code requirements pertaining to: Deck board fastener attachments.

Example of what a Town/City Building inspector looks for in deck construction, based on the IBC (Note the lack of code specifications regarding deck board fastening requirements):
