Voter Validation Update

In anticipation of the upcoming Group B Public Comment Hearings (PCH) and Online Governmental Consensus Vote (OGCV), tremendous effort has been put forth in validating governmental member voting representatives (GMVR). Our members and stakeholders can be confident that PCH and OGCV voters are fully qualified to vote in accordance with the Code Council’s bylaws.

The validation process begins with governmental members (through their primary representatives) submitting the names and credentials of their voters for each three-year code development cycle. Prospective voters are then individually reviewed by Code Council staff to ensure they meet the criteria of the Code Council’s bylaws, qualifying them to vote on behalf of their governmental member. Once reviewed and validated, validated GMVR are posted on ICCsafe.org.

So far, more than 5,200 voters representing 1,300+ governmental members have been validated between 2021 and 2022. Due to the large number of submissions received towards the end of the submission deadline, a small number of voters are currently in the final stage of review and will be completed well in advance of the PCH.

Note: Code Council members can view validated GMVRs through myICC (https://my.iccsafe.org/).
