The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.
Note to Nonmembers: If you join the ICC you can have access to important building safety information!
As an ICC Member, you have access to the Members Area of the Codes & Standards Discussion Forum. Follow the link to discuss the Membership Councils and other benefits of being an ICC Member.

I am trying to find out what roof coverings belong in what type of construction. Do asphalt shingles belong in type IA or type IB, metal panels, built up roof etc.

Table 1505.1 ('09 IBC) has minimum roof classification for types of construction. IA & IB require Class B.
Asphalt shingles and metal panels aren't any classification unless they have been tested and materials are typically tested as part of an assembly. There is an exception in Class A for metal roofing but it is specific for installation on non-combustible decks or non-combustible framing with no deck.
