ABOUT THE ICC: The International Code Council (ICC) is a U.S.-based membership association. It is dedicated to developing model codes and standards used in the design, build and compliance process to construct safe, sustainable, affordable and resilient structures in the built environment.
ICC MEMBERS: International Code Council Members are building safety professionals concerned with health, saf...ety and welfare in the built environment. Members include building, fire, plumbing, mechanical and energy officials representing federal, state, county and municipal governments. ICC Members also are architects, engineers, designers, builders, labor groups, contractors, elected officials, manufacturers and other representatives of the construction industry.
ICC CHAPTERS: More than 360 Chapters in the U.S. and globally support the International Code Council. Chapters are designated as regional, state, local, professional, student or international. Many Chapters focus on particular disciplines such as building, fire, mechanical or plumbing.
I-CODES: The International Codes, or I-Codes, are model codes published by the International Code Council and developed by ICC Members to provide minimum safeguards for homes, buildings and other structures. ICC uses a governmental consensus process to develop its codes. It is an open, inclusive process that allows input from all individuals and groups. Committees hear all code change proposals. Final decisions are made by ICC Voting Members—Governmental and Honorary Members—who, with no vested interests beyond public safety, represent the public’s best interest. An appeals process allows anyone to appeal a code change. The I-Codes are a complete set of comprehensive, coordinated codes for all aspects of construction.
ICC STANDARDS: International Code Council Standards, often developed with organizations that offer specific expertise, are developed using a consensus process approved by the American National Standards Institute and adopted by reference to be used with the I-Codes or as a stand-alone document. ICC publishes and develops standards that address accessibility, storm shelters, residential dwellings in high-wind regions, bleachers and grandstands, log structures, landscape irrigation systems, solar collectors and solar water heating systems.
PUBLIC/PRIVATE SECTOR COLLABORATION: The International Code Council provides support to governments by developing model codes and standards. As a result, governments do not take on the high cost and complexity of developing their own codes and standards, and benefit from code uniformity that encourages local, affordable construction growth. The I-Codes support public safety and the need for one set of codes without regional limitations.
I-CODE USERS: All 50 states and the District of Columbia have adopted the I-Codes at the state or jurisdictional level. Many federal agencies, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands use or reference the I-Codes. Outside of the U.S., the I-Codes are the basis for the Abu Dhabi International
