NO it is not.
codes are different in different locations but I sure that is not up to any local codes.
To many turns without a clean out and it looks like who ever did it does not have a clue as to how to run pipe.
To many 90's. don't use 1/4 bend (90) if you can do it with less
all those 90 can be done with just 1- 90 and 45 or 3 - 45's

If you are paying someone to do that, fire him and get someone that at least has a clue.

I bet the same plumber who designed this spaghetti PVC mess was "huffing" on the carb cleaner before deciding how to connect the pieces.
