The ICC 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 ICC (ASC A117), 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 this standard, contact the ICC Secretariat, ICC (ASC A117) named below.

The ICC Consensus Committee on Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities, ICC (ASC A117), is developing the next edition of the ICC A117.1 Standard. The Consensus Committee is a continuing committee.

Kermit Robinson, the distinguished ICC Secretariat for the committee recently announced his retirement. We wish Kermit well and thank him for his service to this very important committee.
