What meets basic bldg. code for basement bath?

I’m buying a house in Taylor, MI where the last owner put in a toilet and shower, without a shower pan, no sink, (they used the utility tub in the laundry area), and left the ceiling bare studs. The inspection report says shower pan, exhaust fan, and water resistant ceiling, but makes no specific mention of needing a sink or any floor finish, however adds the statement "to meet basic code". I know that means it needs a door, a heat source, and that the plumbing needs to vent within 8′ of the user device connections, but does anybody know the basic list of requirements?
