Composting toilets are considered a plumbing fixture and come under the plumbing code. Start with the county authority that issues building permits.
If you google "composting toilets" you will get plenty of choices. Investigate thoroughly to get the features that are important to you. Something new on the market that may be of interest to you is the Eco-loo. It separates the waste and processes it without exactly composting it, I think. All worth investigating.
