Building Code Change Deadline Extended to the Evening of January 14

The International Code Council (ICC) has extended the deadline for proposed changes to its Group A International Codes (I-Codes), including the International Building Code. Used in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, these codes are developed using a consensus process that allows input and participation from all individuals and groups. Proposal submissions will be accepted until tomorrow, January 14, at 11:59 p.m. PST.

“Any interested individual or group is invited to submit a code change proposal and welcome to participate,” explained ICC Board of Directors President Guy Tomberlin, CBO. “The process ensures that the International Codes reflect the latest technical and scientific advancements, and creates a forum where anyone can submit a code change in a fair and equitable manner.”

The 2015/2016/2017 code development cycle is the first full cycle to use cdpACCESS, ICC’s cloud-based system that allows for code development for online collaboration, code changes and public comment submittals, submissions of floor modifications and online voting.
