ICC Standards – Consensus Committee on Storm Shelters

The ICC/NSSA Standard for the Design and Construction of Storm Shelters (ICC 500) first published in 2008 will undergo a committee and public review process to determine whether the standard will be re-affirmed, revised, or withdrawn. The purpose of the ICC 500 standard is to establish the minimum requirements to safeguard the public health, safety and general welfare through design, construction and installation requirements for storm shelters.
