International Code Council Receives 2024 President’s “E” Award for Increasing U.S. Exports
The award was created by Executive Order of the President to afford recognition to persons, firms or organizations that contribute significantly to the increase of United States exports

Washington, D.C. – On May 14, 2024, the International Code Council was recognized as a recipient of the 2024 President’s “E” Award (“E-for-Export”) during a ceremony held at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington, D.C. This award is the highest recognition a person or U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.

Dominic Sims, CBO, Code Council CEO and Stuart Tom, President of the Code Council Board of Directors, attended the 63rd annual “E” Awards ceremony where they accepted the award on behalf of the organization.

“We are immensely honored by this award,” said Tom. “It represents the culmination of our efforts to explore new markets for all of the building safety solutions that the Code Council offers and forge meaningful connections worldwide. We will continue to drive building safety on a global scale.”

“The Code Council works tirelessly to expand its global outreach,” said Sims. “We recognize that jurisdictions around the world, operating within different building safety regulatory systems, all seek different and custom solutions. We approach our global outreach with this in mind and continue to evolve the innovative and creative ways to advance our global building safety mission.”

Nominations for these awards are facilitated by the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service office network, operating under the Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration. The primary criteria for the President’s “E” Award is four years of successive export growth, usually accompanied by a rising percentage of export sales within total sales.
