Current Calls for Committees

2018/2019 Cycle Committees and One NEW Standard Committee

Volunteers are one of the most important assets of the International Code Council. Their work on the ICC Board of Directors, committees and councils is directly related to the success of ICC. It takes the time and expertise of many individuals working through the numerous ICC committees to shape the Code Council into the world-class membership organization that exists today.

This “Call for Committee” provides another opportunity to serve. Listed below are the specific Calls for Committee for the following committees:

  • NEW - Water Efficiency Rating Index (WERi) Standard: Application deadline is March 17, 2017.
  • 2018/2019 Code Committees: Application deadline is June 1, 2017.
  • 2018/2019/2020 Code Interpretation Committees: Application deadline is June 1, 2017.
  • 2018/2019/2020 Code Correlation Committee: Application deadline is June 1, 2017.
NEW - Water Efficiency Rating Index (WERi) Standard

ICC and RESNET have joined together to create a water efficiency rating guideline and are now joining together to develop a standard utilizing the guideline as a base document. This new standard will provide a consistent, uniform methodology for evaluating and labeling the water efficiency performance of one-and two- family homes and dwelling units in residential buildings not more than three stories in height above grade and containing multiple dwelling units. The methodology compares the water efficiency performance of an actual home with the water efficiency performance of a reference home, resulting in a relative water efficiency rating called the WER Index. The WER Index will cover both indoor and outdoor water use.

At this time, ICC is receiving applications for General Interest members (Governmental members) for the WERi Standards committee. Code Officials are encouraged to apply. Applications will be reviewed by the Codes and Standards Council who is responsible for making recommendations to the ICC Board of Directors who make the final appointment decision. This is a joint ICC/RESNET standard; other appointments to the committee will be made by RESNET. Click here for an application. The acronym in bold is to be used to identify the committee on the application.

The committee will conduct business via conference calls and emails. However, if travel becomes necessary, ICC Governmental Member Representatives are authorized to travel at ICC’s expense when participating at the meetings. All others are responsible for funding their participation on this committee.

Term: Upon appointment through completion of the standard.

Note: The standard will be developed following the RESNET ANSI approved process.

2018/2019 Code Committees

International Code Committees are an instrumental part of the ICC Code Development Process. There are currently 17 Code Committees, responsible for the review and evaluation of code change proposals submitted to the 2018 International Codes. The codes will be grouped into two cycles – 2018 Group A and 2019 Group B. 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 and then the Committee Action Hearing.

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:

  • 2018 Group A Code Committees considering 2018 code change proposals at the 2018 Committee Action Hearing during the period of April 15 – 25, 2018 in Columbus, OH.
