The Government Relations Department works in collaboration with International Code Council chapters, members, stakeholders and all parties interested in advancing the mission of the ICC to support the adoption and use of the highest quality codes, standards, products and services of ICC and its Family of Companies — ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), International Accreditation Service (IAS), ICC Solar Rating & Certification Council (ICC- SRCC), SK Ghosh, and General Code — for the safety and performance of the built environment. The GR Team does this through advocacy and by forging strategic alliances with entities whose objectives are compatible to those of the ICC.
