Welcome to the 2015/2016/2017 Cycle. This will be the first full cycle which implements ICC’s new online system called “cdpACCESS”. Be sure to visit the cdpACCESS webpage. Included with cdpACCESS are the following features:

  • Online collaboration
  • Online code change and public comment development and submittal
  • Online submission of floor modifications while at the Committee Action Hearing
  • Online Assembly Floor Motion Vote following the Committee Action Hearing
  • Online Governmental Consensus Vote following the Public Comment Hearing

The table below includes all the documentation of each phase of the cycle which will result in the 2018 I-Codes. Information is posted as the Code Development process proceeds. There have been some changes to the Code Groupings from the previous cycle. They are:

  • Codes moved to Group A: IEBC non-structural; IPMC; IRC-M, IRC-P; ISPSC; IZC
  • Codes moved to Group B: IBC - S (which also includes IEBC structural provisions)

Be sure to consult with the "2015/2016/2017 Code Committee Responsibility" matrix (see link in table) to determine where code provisions are maintained by a committee other than the committee which typically has responsibility for maintaining the code provisions. For example, Chapter 9 of the IBC is typically the responsibility of the IBC – Fire Safety, a Group A code committee. However, numerous sections include an [F] in the code to indicate that the provisions are maintained by the IFC code committee, a Group B code committee. As such, proposed changes to these sections in the IBC would be considered in Group B in 2016. This type of information has been collected and placed in the matrix for ease of reference. A complete description of the codes is included in the "Code Development Schedule" (see link in table).
