Call for Committee - Sustainability, Energy & High Performance Building Code Action Committee (SEHPCAC)
Starting with the 2012 Cycle, the ICC Board of Directors (ICC Board) approved the creation of three new Code Action Committees (CAC). This brought the total number of CAC’s to four including the Fire CAC. Code action committees are code discipline specific committees whose purpose is to identify opportunities to improve and enhance a particular International Code or portion thereof. This is accomplished by the CAC’s submitting proposed code changes, modifications and public comments as well as participating in the Committee Action and Public Comment Hearings. Click here for Council Policy 31 which regulates the CAC’s and click here for additional information on the CAC’s.
The appointments for the CAC’s are staggered based on their main area of responsibility in accordance with Council Policy 31. The BCAC, FCAC and PMGCAC committees were appointed effective January 1, 2014 for a 3 year term to coincide with the 2015 and 2016 Code Development Cycles. The terms for current SEHPCAC members expire December 31, 2014 as the SEHPCAC is engaged in the 2014 Group C Cycle and the IgCC.
At this time, ICC is receiving applications for the SEHPCAC. All current members must reapply to be considered for re-appointment. Applications for CAC committee appointments will be reviewed by the Codes and Standards Council who is responsible for making recommendations to the ICC Board who makes the final appointment decision.
