The code change development process was recently revised to improve the quality of code content by fostering a more in-depth vetting of code change proposals.
The International Codes (I-Codes) — developed by the International Code Council — are a family of 15 coordinated, modern building safety codes used throughout the world that protect against disasters like fires, weather-related events and structural collapse.
The code change development process was recently revised to improve the quality of code content by fostering a more in-depth vetting of code change proposals. The changes will take effect in 2024-2026 for the development of the 2027 I-Codes and will move the development process to an integrated and continuous three-year cycle.
The 2024/2025/2026 Code Council code development schedule is now available. Year one will include two Committee Action Hearings for Group A Codes; year two will include two Committee Action Hearings for Group B Codes; and year three will be the joint Public Comment Hearings and Online Governmental Consensus Vote for both Group A and B Codes.
