ICC Evaluation Service
Shahin Moinian is President of ICC Evaluation Service, one of the International Code Council’s Family of Companies. He joined ICC-ES as the Executive Director of ICC-ES Certification Programs in August 2010.

ICC-ES is a nonprofit, third-party certification body that evaluates information from independent testing agencies and laboratories. Data submitted from manufacturers must come from an accredited testing agency to be considered for an evaluation. ICC-ES then conducts thorough evaluations to determine whether a product complies with the applicable code, standards or criteria. If successful, an Evaluation Service Report or a listing is written and posted online.
Moinian also has served as Senior Vice President for ICC-ES Growth Strategies and Certification Programs. He began his career as a project engineer at a spa manufacturing company designing products and components. He then joined a listing agency as an assistant director and eventually the director of research, and then took over as director of codes and standards for Moen Inc.
Moinian is a licensed mechanical engineer in California and Ohio, with a Master’s Degree in mechanical engineering from Cal-Poly, Pomona, and Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from California State University-Los Angeles. He has also taught mechanical engineering courses as an adjunct professor at California State University.
Moinian also is a member of numerous professional organizations, including the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Society of Plumbing Engineers.
