Making a Change to Serve You Better

COVID-19 has created many challenges. The restrictions on travel, in-person meetings and interactions with others have forced the building safety industry to rethink how we do business.

As a result of the pandemic, earlier this year the International Code Council Board of Directors faced a difficult decision of whether and how to conduct the 2020 Annual Conference and Annual Business Meeting. Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty of the pandemic, none of the available options allowed us to plan for a meeting with certainty that it would have complied with the Code Council bylaws and California state law, where the Code Council is currently incorporated. The Board decided to cancel the 2020 meeting, prioritizing the health and well-being of our members, staff and other attendees.

We heard from many of you how important it is that the Code Council be fully prepared to respond in a crisis no matter the circumstances. A thorough research process revealed that the California corporations code does not provide sufficient flexibility for the association to act when needed during an emergency.

After careful consideration, the Board has unanimously determined that it is in the best interests of the Code Council and its members to reincorporate in Delaware. This change in location will not affect any other provisions of the bylaws or current member benefits. It also does not affect our continued plans and commitment to maintaining a significant presence in California including our regional office in Brea.

Today all validated voting members were sent a ballot to vote on this proposal. In order to move forward, at least one hundred voting members must vote, and a majority of the returned ballots must indicate approval. Following approval by the voting members, Code Council staff will take the steps to finalize the change by following necessary statutory requirements.

Please note that only validated voting members are able to vote. If approved, this change will allow us to provide more effective services for all our members, customers and stakeholders. If you have questions or comments, please reach out to memberinput@iccsafe.org.

Thank you for your continued engagement with the Code Council.

International Code Council Joins Sixth Annual “Imagine a Day Without Water”

Washington, D.C. – Today marks the sixth annual Imagine a Day Without Water, a nationwide day of education and advocacy about the value of water. For the second consecutive year, the International Code Council will join elected officials, water utilities, community leaders, educators, and businesses from across the country to raise awareness about not taking water for granted and the crucial need for investment in our nation’s water systems.

Turning on the faucet for clean, safe drinking water, and flushing the toilet with no second thought about what happens to wastewater are actions that most Americans take for granted every day. But this year as our communities have been challenged by the public health crisis from COVID-19, we saw that safe, clean and reliable water service is something we depend on to protect our health and economy. Our nation’s water infrastructure is aging and in need of investment. A day without clean water is a public health and an economic disaster: a single nationwide day without clean water service would put our entire economy at risk.

“In keeping with the Code Council’s ongoing promotion of strong plumbing codes and sustainability standards that address water quality, sanitation, safe water reuse methods and efficiency, we are pleased to partner with the US Water Alliance and the Value of Water Campaign,” said Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “We encourage all of our members to join us in promoting the adoption and implementation of strong plumbing codes and encouraging necessary investment in aging water infrastructure.”

“We’re thrilled that the International Code Council is a part of Imagine a Day Without Water. This national day of action educates our neighbors and public officials about the essential role water plays in all our lives,” said Radhika Fox, CEO of the US Water Alliance and Director of the Value of Water Campaign. “This year showed us the critical importance of water service to safeguard public health and the economy. But the infrastructure and service it takes to bring water to our homes and businesses and take it away is not free and can’t be taken for granted. We all need to educate ourselves about where our water comes from and the investment these critical systems need.”

U.S. Representatives LaHood, Walorski, and Torres-Small, and Blumenauer, co-chairs of the International Water and Sanitation Caucus, which the Code Council supports in advocating for global water, sanitation, and hygiene priorities on Capitol Hill, echoed the Code Council’s support for today’s initiative: “Inadequate water and sanitation around the world is a risk to America's national security and our global health. Now more than ever, investing in clean water, sanitation, and our waterway systems can strengthen diverse communities around the world and increase public health. The International Water and Sanitation Caucus is proud to join with coalition partners in marking Imagine a Day Without Water to encourage education about clean water and investment in critical wash water infrastructure.”

Imagine a Day Without Water is an opportunity for diverse organizations, from environmental advocates to coffee shops, aquariums to car washes, city halls to water utilities, to talk about how water is important to them. Over the past five years, it has provided a platform for educating the public and advocating for leaders to prioritize investing in water today, so in the future no American will have to imagine a day without water.

2019 Group B Code Cycle Appeals Concluded

ICC_Pulse_Web_Header_v1

2019 Group B Code Cycle Appeals Concluded

The International Code Council Board of Directors has issued a final decision on the second groups of appeals within the 2019 Group B code cycle – surrounding scope and intent, and the impact of online voting (CP 28), cost impact, voting guides, voter eligibility and validation process – completing the appeals process.

Scope and Intent

The American Gas Association, the American Public Gas Association, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the Leading Builders of America (LBA) appealed three proposed changes to the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and 2021 International Residential Code (IRC) on the grounds that the proposals in question are outside the scope of the codes. The code changes appealed were RE147-19 (requiring electric readiness) and CE217-19, Parts I and II (requiring electric vehicle supply equipment).

Following the recommendation of the Appeals Board, the Code Council Board determined that the code changes in question are outside the current scope and intent of the energy provisions of the IECC and IRC and sustained the appeals. RE147-19 and CE217-19 will not appear in the 2021 International Codes.

 

Impact of Online Voting (CP 28), Cost Impact, Voting Guides, Voter Eligibility and Validation Process 

NAHB and LBA appealed a group of twenty code changes to the 2021 IECC on the grounds of ineligible voters, cost impact, not meeting the spirit and intent of the process, and improper use of voting guides.

The Appeals Board found no clear violationof process or procedure and recommended denial of the appeals. The Code Council Board of Directors voted to deny the appeals.

In addition, the Code Council Board referred a number of issues to the Board Committee on the Long-Term Code Development Process for further review, including the definitions of governmental members and voting representatives, the procedures for the in-person and online votes, and the issue of cost impact. This committee is a venue for stakeholders to provide feedback on the process and suggest changes.

The Code Council Board also recommended consideration of a Code Council energy standard to replace the IECC and Chapter 11 of the IRC.

This concludes the 2019 Group B code cycle appeals, adding to the decisions on the first two groups of appeals – preemption and committee reconsideration.

The International Code Council’s code development protocols are designed to protect the integrity of the process. These appeals are one part of a longer code development process that is responsive, transparent and open.

Unified Water Label Association Recognizes ICC-ES as Scheme Partner

Brea, Calif. – ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), a member of the International Code Council family of solutions and the experts in building product evaluation and certification, has been accepted as a supporter and scheme partner to the Unified Water Label Association (UWLA). The partnership signifies that ICC-ES certification services are recognized by the UWLA as an option to demonstrate compliance for manufacturers whose products are undergoing periodic audit.

Bathroom manufacturers around the world are aiding governments in their quest to reduce water consumption by producing new, innovative and technologically advanced bathroom products. The Unified Water Label (UWL) is a harmonized European label for all water-using bathroom products. For those looking to enter the European market, this label is an important way to recognize energy-efficient bathroom products and, as an ISO/IEC 17065 accredited body, ICC-ES can help to certify such products.

ICC-ES currently works with manufacturers of plumbing products globally, certifying products for conformity to North American Codes and standards and is capable of certifying to the UWL scheme as well, offering manufacturers an added credential that will aid in market entry in Europe or any of the other markets around the world that have adopted or recognized the UWL.

"Global harmonization and a focus on high quality building and plumbing product safety standards worldwide are at the forefront of the Code Council's initiatives," said Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. "This additional recognition available by ICC-ES will support manufacturers looking to expand their sales to new international markets."

“We are always looking to serve the needs of our customers, and this collaborative partnership with UWLA adds value for plumbing manufacturers looking to get their products into the European market,” said ICC-ES President Shahin Moinian, P.E. "Existing report holders may include the UWL as an add-on certification, and it also serves as a point of difference for manufacturers looking to transfer their listing to a globally-inclusive evaluation service provider."

The ICC-ES Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas (PMG) program is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), Standards Council of Canada (SCC), and ema to certify plumbing and mechanical products to Official Mexican Standards (NOMs). With this, the program offers listings to meet all manufacturer certification needs in the United States, Canada and Mexico. ICC-ES PMG is also licensed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to certify water-efficient products under the WaterSense program and is approved by the City of Los Angeles.

International Code Council Receives Commerce Department Grant to Support Publication and Implementation of Gulf Building Codes

Washington, D.C. – The International Code Council received formal notification today that it is the recipient of the Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP) grant to partially underwrite the work that the Code Council will undertake with the Gulf Standardization Organization (GSO) to publish a suite of regional model building codes. The grant is a major show of support for the work undertaken by the GSO since that organization entered into an agreement with the Code Council in 2016 to begin work developing the unified Gulf Building Code.

The work to develop the Gulf Building Code has been underway for the past four years, involving stakeholders based in all Gulf Cooperation Council member states, and the development process is now in its final stages. The GSO relied heavily on the 2018 Saudi Building Code, which is based on the 2015 International Codes. The MDCP grant will enable the Code Council to provide substantial support to the GSO to publish the codes in print and electronic versions, as well as develop training and certification programs specific to the Gulf Code to enable its implementation and effective use.  Once implemented, the Gulf Building Code will support the harmonization of building practices, enhance safety and facilitate commerce in the region.

The Code Council has deepened its cooperation with the GSO over the past year, particularly through the establishment of its global office in Dubai to serve the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The two organizations have pledged further collaboration in the area of building safety, which includes capacity building, education, public outreach, knowledge sharing, and the development and harmonization of standards and technical regulations. This project to aid publication and capacity building related to the Gulf Building Code will substantially advance the collaboration of the two groups and promote access to and use of advanced international standards in the construction industry.

The Gulf Building Code is a family of consistent and coordinated codes that will reference over a thousand international standards and will promote sustainability and affordability in commercial construction and housing. Use of the Gulf Building Code will also support the use of new technologies such as 3D printing, off-site construction, and those that promote the improved energy performance of buildings.

“The Code Council is excited to have the support of the U.S. Government through the International Trade Administration’s Market Development Cooperator Program to advance our work with our partners at the Gulf Standardization Organization,” said Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “We have identified the MENA region as a priority region for our global focus, and launching a regional code is a huge step forward in advancing harmonized building safety efforts.”

GSO President H.E. Mr. Saud Al-Khuasaibi emphasized the importance of global and regional cooperation in standardization efforts. “Providing a model building code based on strong, advanced international standards for all GCC members and stakeholders in the region to reference is strictly aligned with the mission of the GSO. We welcome the support and partnership from the Code Council and U.S. International Trade Administration to advance the publication and rollout of the Gulf Building Code.”

Appeals on Committee Reconsideration and Preemption Concluded

ICC_Pulse_Web_Header_v1

Appeals on Committee Reconsideration and Preemption Concluded

The International Code Council Board of Directors has issued a final decision on the first two groups of appeals – preemption and committee reconsideration – and outlined next steps. The Board will meet again on Monday, October 5, 2020, to consider the remaining appeals related to the 2019 Group B code cycle.

These appeals are one part of a longer code development process that is responsive, transparent and open. For more information about this process and how it creates the most widely used and adopted set of building safety codes in the world, click here.

Preemption

In this case, preemption is the invalidation of a code provision that conflicts with U.S. federal law. It promotes consistency across state lines in the U.S. and allows for manufacturers to create products that will be accepted in all 50 U.S. states.

Four entities – American Gas Association, American Public Gas Association, Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute, and National Association of Home Builders – appealed select changes to the 2021 International Codes (I-Codes) on the grounds that the changes are preempted by federal law.

The Appeals Board recommended denial of the appeals, in part due to their limited authority. They also suggested that the Code Council Board initiate an analysis of the preemption issue and determine whether any remedial action should be taken under the Board’s broader authority. The Code Council Board voted to support the denial of the appeals of RE107-19 (dealing with pilot lights on gas appliances) and RE126-19 (dealing with efficiency ratings for gas-fired water heaters) as they found no violation of the Code Council’s processes or procedures.

The Code Council Board also determined that, upon review, including potentially preempted provisions in the I-Codes is inconsistent with the spirit, intent and mission of the Code Council. Indeed, the codes explicitly state that they do not nullify any provisions of local, state or federal law. Accordingly, the Board determined that the approved language from RE107-19 and RE126-19 will not be included in the 2021 International Residential Code (IRC) or International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).

In addition, the Code Council Board referred the issue of preemption generally for consideration to the Board Committee on the Long-Term Code Development Process. This committee is a venue for stakeholders to provide feedback on the process and suggest changes to the code development process.

Committee Reconsideration

Appellant Jake Pauls filed appeals on two code changes in the IRC: RB81-19 (related to grab bars in bath and shower) and RB116-19 (related to stairways). The appellant requested that the matters be sent back to the committee for further consideration of evidence.

The Code Council Board voted to uphold the Appeals Board recommendation to deny the appeals on the basis that no violation of the Code Council’s processes or procedures were found. The two code changes will be referred to the Building Code Action Committee for consideration in the code development cycle for the 2024 I-Codes.
