Call for Committees
The International Code Council is currently accepting applications for the following Codes & Standards Committee:
Pool Solar Heating and Cooling Standard Consensus Committee (ICC/SRCC/APSP Standard)
ICC, as an ANSI-accredited standards developer, provided notice of the intent to develop a standard through the ANSI Project Initiation Notification System (PINS) which was published in the April 17, 2015 edition of the ANSI Standards Action. The standard is being developed jointly by ICC, the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC) and the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) and is to be entitled “Pool Solar Heating and Cooling Standard.”
The standard will be developed by the Pool Solar Heating and Cooling Standard Consensus Committee and is scoped as follows:
This standard will establish minimum requirements for the performance, design, and installation of solar thermal heating systems for heating water used within pools, spas, hot tubs, exercise spas, water parks, and spray grounds. This standard will also establish methods for rating the performance of these systems based on projections and test data for specific climates, locations, times of year, and pool or spa type. This standard will apply to both residential and commercial systems, both direct and indirect heating systems and both new and existing installations.
The ICC/SRCC/APSP standard will be developed utilizing ICC’s Consensus Procedures. For more information on the ICC procedures for developing standards, please refer to the ICC Consensus Procedures posted here.
At this time, ICC is receiving applications for members to serve on this committee. In accordance with ICC’s Consensus Procedures, the committee will be a balanced committee of 12 – 15 members of the following Interest Categories: General; User; and Producer. Accordingly, stakeholders such as regulators, renewable incentive program managers, solar system designers and installers, pool designers and builders, associated product manufacturers and researchers should apply. A full description of the Interest Categories is included in the application linked below. Any stakeholder is welcome to apply and ICC membership is not required. Applications for committee appointment 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.

The schedule anticipates 4-5 meetings per year, to be conducted via teleconference and webmeeting. It is not anticipated that in-person meetings will be convened for the development of this standard. However, if travel is required, ICC Governmental Member Representatives are authorized to travel at ICC’s expense when participating at ICC Consensus Committee meetings. All others are responsible for funding their participation on this committee.
Work groups will also be formed, as needed, to assist in the development of the standard. Work groups will be open to both committee members and interested parties.
