Given the urgency in ensuring the committees have enough time to complete its work to publish the 2024 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) alongside the other International Codes (I-Codes), IECC committee member terms are effective immediately and will end June 15, 2024.
The committee appointees represent a wide array of experience in building types and energy efficiency strategies, as well as racial, gender and socio-economic diversity, composing balanced committees that represent a multitude of stakeholder interests. Each committee member was chosen based on their qualifications, interest category, past participation in the codes and standards development process, geography and organization size.
For the 2024 development process, the Code Council is pleased to announce the following committee Chairs and Vice Chairs.

Code Council Committees are the foundation upon which the system of the I-Codes, standards and related services are built, and their importance cannot be overemphasized. The responsibilities of the committees include reviewing and evaluating public input, considering the market readiness of technologies, and producing a code that meets the requirements contained in the IECC's new scope, intent and principles. The IECC development committees will be essential to regularly updating the IECC and will advance the vision and work required to help communities and the building sector meet energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction goals.
There are many ways to participate in the development of the IECC, including a series of working group meetings on specific areas of interest which are open to the public. Sign up below to receive our email updates on the IECC development process moving forward.
The next step in development of the 2024 IECC is the solicitation of code change proposals for consideration by the committees. Code change proposals related to the 2021 IECC can be submitted online beginning in mid-July 2021 through October 12, 2021.
