BOCA Votes To Impact Future
One resolution encourages further consolidation of the services of the three model code organizations. Among the reasons cited to consolidate are developing code uniformity at all levels of government, coordinating and achieving consistency in code enforcement, and creating universal educational programs for code officials, architects, engineers, contractors and public administrators.
The ICC Board also sought input on the future of the ICC Code Development Process. Currently the process permits representatives of state and local governments to have a deciding vote on code content issues. The approval of a resolution by BOCA members encourages ICC to consider using a process that extends rights to representatives of all industry interests.
