Building Codes 101, Part II: ICC and Building Codes
Where the first part of this webinar series provided an overview of building codes, this second part focuses on the model codes provided by the International Code Council (ICC). It provides more specific information on ICC’s family of codes and the methods used to create and modify them. It seeks to provide you with the information you need to make use of ICC’s codes and participate in its code development process.
Through ICC’s governmental process used to create the codes, and the three-year, multi-step consensus process used, it provides real examples of what goes into a code change proposal. The goal of this webinar is to provide you with the tools to participate by submitting proposals, participating in code action hearings, and offering public comments. It is fundamental background material for those who are planning to get involved in code development for the first time.
