Overview: The International Code Council (ICC) was established in 1994 to develop a single set of national model construction codes. The founders of the ICC are Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc. (BOCA), International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO), and Southern Building Code Congress International, Inc. (SBCCI). The purpose of the ICC was to create one internationally recognized code. The ICC promotes wider code adoption, better code enforcement and enhanced membership services and deals with issues and concerns of a regulatory nature. These concerns include, among other things, disaster mitigation, energy conservation, accessibility, innovative technology and fire protection. The ICC has developed and made available an inventory of International Codes. The ICC has over 250 staff members at 16 offices in the US and Latin America that provide code application assistance, educational programs, certification programs, technical handbooks and workbooks, plan reviews, automated products, monthly magazines and newsletters, publication of proposed code changes, training, and informational videos.
