New Basement Sink Install

I am new to this forum, and posted this q. in the 'intro' thread,
but realized it belongs here instead.

Does anyone know where I can find an online, straightforward plumber's code for MA ? I want to
plumb a utility sink into my basement, but need to make
sure I tap the water lines (copper) and do the drain (PVC) properly.

I can sweat the pipe and glue the pvc, but I don't know
what intake pipes I should/should not draw the water from (i.e. take
them right off of the clothes washer pipes or only off of the main
intake pipes?), what the angles for the drain should be, and whether I can tie the drain for the sink into the existing drain-pipe for the washer
OR should the sink drain go into the stack independently?
