|For easy access and application for codes and standards users, the International Code Council(ICC) is collaborating with ASHRAE to make construction industry safety standards, as referenced in the 2012 International Codes, available to the building industry in a downloadable PDF format on the ICC website.
“In today’s mobile, digital environment, building officials and other professionals demand information anytime, anywhere—including industry standards. We are proud to feature additional ASHRAE titles in our growing digital standards library,” ICC Executive Vice President & Director of Business Development Mark A. Johnson said.
