Official Notice of Appeals on the 2019 Group B Final Action Hearing results posted
The International Code Council posted the official Notice of Appeals in accordance with Section 6.1 of Council Policy 1 Appeals (CP 1). We received six appeals on the 2019 Group B Final Action results from the following organizations/individuals:
- American Gas Association and American Public Gas Association
- Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute
- Leading Builders of America
- National Association of Home Builders
- Jake Pauls, BArch, CPE, HonDSc (2 appeals)
The appeals were submitted in response to the 2019 Group B Final Action on one or more code change proposals and posted on the appeals webpage on May 28, 2020. Visit the Code Council’s 2019 Group B Appeals webpage for all documents related to the appeals. The appeals website will serve as the notification vehicle and repository for all documents related to the appeals.
Interested parties, or their representatives, are hereby invited to respond to the appeal(s) by submitting views in writing for consideration by the Code Council Appeals Board and are invited to request to participate in and present information at the Appeals Board hearing(s), subject to the discretion of the Appeals Board. At least 15 days prior to the scheduled hearing(s), all views in writing and a notice of attendance must be received via email by Mike Pfeiffer.
The date and time of the appeal hearings will be posted at least 20 days prior to the scheduled appeals hearings. The official Notice of Appeals includes placement of the appeals before the Appeals Board (Section 4.1 of CP 1). In accordance with Section 6.2 of CP 1, the Appeals Board shall schedule the appeal hearings by Aug. 7, 2020, via a posted Notice of Hearings. The hearings will occur in August or September 2020. Time limits at the hearings may be implemented at the discretion of the Appeals Board.
Due to the significant amount of crossover between some of the appeals, the determination of which appeals will be considered together will be at the discretion of the Appeals Board. In all cases, each appeal will be acted upon separately by the Appeals Board. The Notice of Hearings will include the deadline for written views/notice of attendance for each appeal hearing as well as the logistics of the hearings. The appeals hearings will be conducted virtually.
If you have any questions, please contact Mike Pfeiffer, P.E., senior vice president of technical services at the International Code Council.
