IECC: 2024 and Beyond

Important News

News & Updates

For over three decades, the International Code Council has developed an energy code that has reduced the impact of energy use on our planet and saved consumers billions of dollars on their energy bills. From 2006 to 2021, the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) increased its efficiency requirements by about 40%, or an average of 8% a cycle. Even with the consistent progress of the IECC, many stakeholders, including code officials, have expressed concern about the IECC development process and the outcomes over the past decade. Following the recommendations from the Appeals Board and the Board Committee on the Long-Term Code Development Process (Blue Ribbon Committee), in December 2020 the Code Council Board put forward a framework for the updating of the IECC and Ch. 11 of the International Residential Code (IRC) using the ICC standards process, subject to stakeholder input and final approval by the ICC Board of Directors.

During the public comment period in December 2020 and January 2021, the Code Council Board received a number of written comments and verbal testimony related to the IECC. Click on “Written Comments” below to view the written submissions. The board is reviewing all the commentary and will meet again in a few weeks to continue deliberations. No decision has been made yet.

Bylaws Committee

Code Council Bylaws Committee

The International Code Council Bylaws serve as the primary governing document of the association. The Code Council Bylaws Committee was established to evaluate proposed bylaw amendments, provide input and propose additional related actions to the Code Council Board of Directors (See Council Policy 43-08.)

Recently, Code Council President Greg Wheeler appointed the committee that will conduct the first major review of the bylaws since their creation. The Code Council Board and Chief Executive Officer feel that a comprehensive look at the bylaws is important given the growth of the organization, the Code Council's 2025 strategic plan, and the changing world around us.

Additionally, President Wheeler appointed the following three ex officio, non-voting members from the Emerging Leaders Membership Council to serve on the committee:

  • Elizabeth Arrington – Kentucky
  • Andre Jaen – Colorado
  • Benjamin Breadmore – Maine

President Wheeler has charged the Committee with evaluating potential amendments that would address natural or man-made emergencies or disasters, and with considering other potential revisions that the Committee determines to be prudent and in the best interests of the organization.

The next Bylaws Committee meeting is scheduled for September 1, 2020. The Committee will continue its work through a series of meetings throughout the fall and will develop a detailed report for the Code Council Board to consider in December 2020.

Member engagement will be critical to the Committee’s work. Please submit your feedback and comments related to the bylaws to memberinput@iccsafe.org

ICC Residential Seismic Assessment and Retrofit Standard Consensus Committee

As an ANSI Accredited standards developing organization, the Code Council is developing New ICC 1300-202x, Standard for the Vulnerability-Based Seismic Assessment and Retrofit of One- and Two-Family Dwellings.   This committee has the primary responsibility for the development of minimum requirements to safeguard the public health, safety, general welfare by providing a methodology for the identification, evaluation and retrofit of specific known vulnerabilities for one- and two-family wood light-frame dwellings up to 2 stories in height located in Seismic Design Categories B through E.  This includes the use of the best available seismic numerical modeling tools and engineering practices to assist in development of assessment methods and to identify retrofit criteria to best achieve targeted performance objectives.  Use of the provisions is anticipated to improve earthquake performance but is not necessarily intended to prevent earthquake damage. Also included is the evaluation and retrofit of masonry chimneys attached to 3 story buildings.

 

The Residential Seismic Assessment and Retrofit Standard Consensus Committee (IS-RSARC) was appointed by the ICC Board of Directors in June 2020 and has primary responsibility for the development as an American National Standard.  All standards development is subject to ICC's ANSI Approved Consensus Procedures.

 

Applications to serve on the committee were received on February 25, 2020 for the ICC Board of Directors consideration in response to a call for committee in January 2020.

The Code Council adheres to openness and transparency in our Standards development process. All ICC Standards committee meetings are open to the public.  Any interested party can participate in committee meetings and can be considered by the committee for membership on any work-group that the committee creates.  Interested parties will be notified by email of standards activities related to IS-RSARC, including committee meetings, sub-group meetings and the availability of standard development documentation.  If you wish to be placed on the “interested parties” list for the development of these standards, please email the IS-RSARC, ICC Secretariat Samhar Hoz at shoz@iccsafe.org.

The IS RSARC committee is currently accepting applications for the "Governmental Regulator" [h] interest category.  Please use the link: https://www.iccsafe.org/membership/councils-committees/icc-committee-application/  to access an application form. 

The first public Webex meeting of the IS RSARC committee was held on October 16, 2020.  The meeting included orientation for the committee members as well as the election of the chair and vice-chair.

Notice for the next meeting of the committee scheduled for February 25, 2021, at 11:00 am CT is posted below.
