Code Council expands commitment to plumbing and mechanical industry
Jay Peters has joined the staff of the International Code Council as Executive Director of Plumbing and Mechanical Activities. Peters will be responsible for increasing the programs’ visibility and industry involvement; identifying new standards, guidelines and code-related matters; developing training programs and support products; and creating new avenues to advance ICC activities in the plumbing and mechanical arenas.
“The ultimate goal is to build a world-class plumbing and mechanical program with ICC,” said Peters. “Integrity and respect are the cornerstones of a credible program. The industry and the ICC membership’s commitment to public safety are crucial for success.”
Peters comes to the Code Council from the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), where he served as Senior Director of Codes and Education. During his tenure at IAPMO, Peters was responsible for code development, education and certification programs and served as the Standards Council Secretary.
“Jay brings an abundance of real-world experience in the plumbing, mechanical and fuel gas industries as a tradesman, educator and entrepreneur,” said International Code Council CEO Rick Weiland. “He will enable the Code Council to expand and enhance products and services and brings ICC a new level of expertise and credibility in the plumbing and mechanical marketplace.”
The International Code Council also is investing in a new strategic plan to support plumbing, mechanical and fuel gas activities. The goal of the investment is to stimulate member and industry participation and position the Code Council as a leader in the advancement of emerging technical issues.

The International Code Council, a membership association dedicated to building safety and fire prevention, develops the codes used to construct residential and commercial buildings, including homes and schools. Most U.S. cities, counties and states that adopt codes choose the International Codes developed by the International Code Council.
