Code Action Committees

Codes and Standards Council

9/19/22

With the upcoming conclusion of the 2022 Group B Cycle after the Online Governmental Consensus Vote in October, the 2021/2022 Cycle of Code Development is coming to a close which will result in the publication of the 2024 I-Codes. It’s time to start gearing up for the 2024/2026 Cycle! The 2024/2026 Cycle will bring significant changes to the process. Click here for information.

This call is for the following:

  • 5 Code Action Committees (BCAC, FCAC, PMGCAC, SEHPCAC and the CCAC)
  • Codes and Standards Council

In January/February of 2023, there will be another Call for Committee for the remaining 2024/2026 Cycle committees, namely: Code Development, Interpretation and the Code Correlation Committee. The application deadline will be June 1, 2023.

Technical Code Action Committees 

Technical Code Action Committees are code discipline specific committees whose purpose is to identify opportunities to improve and enhance a particular International Code or portion thereof. This is accomplished by the CAC’s submitting proposed code changes, modifications and public comments as well as participating in the Committee Action and Public Comment Hearings. Click here for Council Policy 31 which regulates the CAC’s and click here for the CAC website.

At this time, ICC is receiving applications for members for the four technical CAC’s listed below. The current CAC members whose term expire December 31, 2022 must reapply to be considered for re-appointment. CP 31 limits terms to two consecutive terms. Applications for CAC committee appointments will be reviewed by the Codes and Standards Council who is responsible for making recommendations to the ICC Board who makes the final appointment decision. Click here for an application – use the “Codes Committees” application. The acronym in bold is to be used to identify the CAC you are applying for on the application.

BCAC               Building Code Action Committee. Primary responsibility is: IBC Chapters 1-6, 10-13, 15-25, and 27-35; IEBC; IPMC; IRC Chapters 1-10; IZC

FCAC               Fire Code Action Committee. Primary responsibility is: IBC Chapters 7, 8, 9, 14 and 26; IFC; ICC Performance Code; IWUIC

PMGCAC         Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas Code Action Committee. Primary responsibility is: IFGC, IMC, IPC, IPSDC; IRC Chapters 12 -33; ISPSC

SEHPCAC        Sustainability, Energy & High Performance Building Code Action Committee (IECC, IgCC and Chapter 11 of the IRC). SEHPCAC activity on the IECC and IRC Chapter 11 requires involvement in the ICC standards process used to update the energy provisions of the respective I-Codes.

The CAC’s typically conduct business via web conference calls. With the CAC’s now being reconstituted with new members, there may be an initial in-person meeting. If an initial in person meeting is scheduled, ICC Governmental Member Representatives are authorized to travel at ICC’s expense when participating at CAC meetings. All others are responsible for funding their participation on this committee. It is important to note that the CAC’s use Work Groups extensively throughout the cycle. Such Work Groups are comprised of both CAC committee members and interested parties and conduct business exclusively via conference calls.

In the past, CAC terms have been 3 year terms, starting the year prior to the code change deadline and concluding with the end of the Group B Cycle. With the change in process starting in 2024 as noted previously, the 2024/2026 Cycle will extend into the third year of the cycle with the conclusion occurring at the combined Group A and Group B OGCV in April/May of 2026. As part of the transition to the new process, the initial terms will be 3.5 years.
