New ICC, SES Resources Provide Guidance for the Effective Creation and Implementation of Standards
The International Code Council (ICC) is collaborating with SES—The Society for Standards Professionals in the distribution of two key resources designed to assist Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) and others who utilize or are involved in the standards development process. These two publications, ANSI/SES-1:2013, Recommended Practice for Designation and Organization of Standards and SES-2:2012, Model Procedure for the Development of Standards provide guidance for those interested in the effective creation and implementation of standards.
The Code Council is making these standards available to its members, industry and other standard practitioners in both print and digital formats.
“These new resources provide guidance for standard developers and others involved in defining the standards for safety, innovation and resilience in the built environment,” said ICC Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “Through continued improvement in the development of standards that protect the public’s welfare and safety, we want to improve speed to market and encourage economic growth through better coordination between industry, design and compliance professionals.”
The two publications currently available are:
ANSI/SES-1:2013, Recommended Practice for Designation and Organization of Standards
Standardization for the organization of the material covered is critical for SDOs so that users can quickly know where to locate important sections of a standard such as the scope, definitions, relevant references, performance requirements, related testing procedures and other requirements.
SES-2:2012, Model Procedure for the Development of Standards
Both publications are available through the Code Council at www.iccsafe.org/SES or by calling 1-888-ICC-SAFE (422-7233).
