2015 I-Codes

Call for Committee(s) - 2015/2016/2017 Cycle 

2015/2016/2017 International Code Committees

International Code Committees are an instrumental part of the ICC Code Development Process. There are currently 18 Code Committees, responsible for the review and evaluation of code change proposals submitted to the 15 International Codes. As with the 2012/2013/2014 Cycle, the codes will be grouped into three cycles. Group A codes will be processed in 2015, Group B codes will be processed in 2016 and Group C codes will be processed in 2017. Each cycle will start with a code change submittal, utilizing ICC’s online cdpACCESS submittal process, with code changes due in January of the applicable year (approximately one week following the New Years’ holiday). This is followed by the posting of the code changes (typically in mid-March) and then the Committee Action Hearing (typically end of April/early May). The purpose of this call is to solicit applications for code committee members to preside over the Committee Action Hearings noted below.

The Committee Action Hearing schedule for the respective groups is as follows:

  • Group A Code Committees considering 2015 code change proposals at the 2015 Committee Action Hearing during the period of April 26 – May 3, 2015 in Memphis.
  • Group B Code Committees considering 2016 code change proposals at the 2016 Committee Action Hearing. Dates and location TBD.
  • Group C Code Committees considering 2017 code change proposals at the 2017 Committee Action Hearing. Dates and location TBD.

As soon as the dates and locations for the 2016 and 2017 Committee Action Hearings are established, this Call will be updated and notifications posted.

At this time, ICC is receiving applications for Group A, Group B and Group C Code Committees. Code Committee members are considered for appointment by the Codes and Standards Council with final approval resting with the ICC Board of Directors.  All current 2012/2013/2014 code committee members (including 2014 IgCC – EW and IgCC – GEN members who will be presiding at the 2014 Committee Action Hearings) must re-apply to be considered for re-appointment.
