Rainwater Collection System Standard Project
Background and Scope
ICC, as an ANSI-accredited standards developer, provided notice of the intent to develop an ANSI consensus standard for the design and installation of rainwater harvesting systems through the ANSI Project Initiation Notification Systems (PINS) in April, 2011. Notification of these PINS filings were published in the ANSI Standards Action of April 1, 2011. The scope of the first standard to undergo development, ICC-805, was described as follows in the filing:
BSR/CSA/ICC 805-201x, Standard for Rainwater Collection System Design and Installation (new standard): Applies to the design, installation and maintenance of rainwater collection systems intended to collect, store, treat, distribute, and utilize rainwater for potable and nonpotable applications.
Rainwater Collection System Design and Installation Consensus Committee (IS-RCSDI)
The Rainwater Collection System Design Consensus Committee (IS-RCSDI) was appointed by the ICC Board of Directors in collaboration with CSA in late 2013 and has primary responsibility for the development of the proposed standard.
All standard development is subject to ICC's ANSI-approved standard development policy and CSA’s standard development procedures. Click here for all ICC standards-related policies, which conform to the consensus requirements in the ANSI Essential Requirements. All meetings of the IS-RCSDI are open to attendance and participation by the public.
