Calls for Committees

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 councils and committees:

  • New Standard Committee: Standard for Spray-Applied Polyurethane Foam Plastic Insulation
  • Codes and Standards Council
  • Four current Code Action Committees:
    • Building (BCAC)
    • Fire (FCAC)
    • Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas (PMGCAC)
    • Sustainability, Energy & High Performance (SEHPCAC)
  • New Code Action Committee: Compliance Code Action Committee (CCAC)
  • Ad Hoc Committee on Healthcare

Current Calls for Committees

NEW STANDARD: Standard for Spray-Applied Polyurethane Foam Plastic Insulation

ICC has submitted PINS to ANSI to announce the development of a new standard entitled ICC 1100 - Standard for Spray-Applied Polyurethane Foam Plastic Insulation.

As noted in the PINS submittal, construction codes have requirements for thermal resistance of insulating materials but currently include limited material standards for certain types of insulating materials. The purpose is to develop a performance standard based upon existing ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria and related documents for spray-applied foam plastic insulation for use by industry and possible inclusion in construction codes. The standard will establish the minimum physical and performance properties as well as application requirements for spray-applied foam plastic insulations.

At this time, ICC is receiving applications for membership on this committee. Code officials, spray-applied foam plastic insulation manufacturers, design professionals, product testing and certification agencies are encouraged to apply. Applications for 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. Click here for an application. The acronym in bold is to be used to identify the committee on the application.

IS – FPI                        Consensus Committee on Foam Plastic Insulation

The committee will conduct business via in-person meetings and conference calls. ICC Governmental Member Representatives are authorized to travel at ICC’s expense. All others are responsible for funding their participation on this committee.

Term: Upon appointment through completion of the standard.

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.
