As the global leader in providing building safety solutions, we can meet the needs of jurisdictions around the world in creating and implementing strong building safety ecosystems. We partner with national governments, local jurisdictions, standards bodies, and regional organizations to provide access to our model codes and standards, conformity assessment, training, certification, and advisory services to build capacity and facilitate the development of safe, sustainable and resilient communities around the world.
