Welcome to the Major Jurisdiction Committee (MJC) Best Practices web page. The purpose is to maximize the benefit of shared resources, concepts and programs, to learn from both our successes and failures and provide contacts to better enable state and local jurisdictions to function in a more cost effective and efficient manner.

The Major Jurisdiction Committee (MJC) would like to encourage our members to submit “Best Practices” that you or your Jurisdiction have either developed or experienced in a code administration environment. Best Practices will be expanded to include both MJC vetted best practices and best practices vetted through the International Accreditation Services (IAS) process. All submittals will be in the same format to simplify the search process. Further, IAS has a series of categories that all best practices will be catalogued per the IAS methodology to enhance ease of use.

After review by the MJC Steering Committee, we will be posting your outstanding contributions on this page. This is a perfect example of code officials helping one another improve without reinventing the wheel. This synergy will help each of us to better serve our community and our customers, while potentially saving money.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and submittals. Please review the attached form for your “Best Practices” submission. You can submit your forms via email at mjc@iccsafe.org.

If you have any other comments or questions, please submit through mjc@iccsafe.org. We are committed to providing you a prompt response.
