The 2021 Group A Online Governmental Consensus Vote was conducted October 15th through November 1st and the preliminary results are available. These results contain only the preliminary action on the Group A changes.

Cost Impact for 2022 Group B Code Changes.

In support of the ICC Code Development Process, the Industry Advisory Committee (IAC) recommended the development of a Cost Impact Guide which provides information regarding the requirements concerning the cost impact statements that are required as part of every code change proposal. The IAC completed the guide which has been endorsed by the Board Committee on the Long Term Code Development Process and approved by the Code Council Board of Directors. This guide was developed with input from Industry Advisory Committee members, from code officials, and from ICC staff. The guide is intended to be a useful and informative resource that will help in understanding the purpose and objective of the cost impact requirements in the code submission process.
