The International Code Council (ICC) and the International Accreditation Service (IAS) Board today announced the selection of Raj Nathan as IAS President.

IAS is a nonprofit, scientific, educational subsidiary of the Code Council that accredits calibration and testing laboratories, providers of inspection services, building/code enforcement agencies, fire prevention departments, fabricators, metal builders’ and assemblers’ inspection programs, management system certification bodies, product certification agencies, personnel certification bodies and related conformity assessment organizations.

Nathan is replacing C.P. “Chuck” Ramani, who is retiring after a 44-year career in global conformity assessment and construction code enforcement. Nathan has more than 30 years of experience in business development, operations, accreditation and conformity assessment and has been with IAS since 2002. His most recent position was senior vice president, where he was responsible for day-to-day operations for the organization. During his tenure at IAS, Nathan spearheaded a major restructuring of the organization’s operations to better serve clients’ needs, led a multi-phased software development to automate internal processes, directed an enhanced digital marketing strategy and spearheaded IAS’s global business services.

“On behalf of the IAS Board, I’m excited to welcome Raj as the new IAS President,” said IAS Board of Directors Chair James G. Toscas, P.E. “Raj has been a dedicated member of the IAS team and an important factor in the remarkable growth of the organization for many years, and we all look forward to working with him closely during this transition and beyond.”

“Raj’s appointment as president is the culmination of many years of hard work and commitment to IAS. Under his vision and leadership, we’re sure to see a continued focus on quality services, customer satisfaction and global growth,” said Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO.
