Building Code Groups Merge

Las Vegas, NV The nation’s top three building code
organizations have merged into a single entity, to be called the
International Code Council (ICC).

The merger was announced during an official signing
ceremony at the recent International Builders Show here.
The ICC’s founding organizations, which had operated under the
BOCA, ICBO and SBCCI names, were at one time competing
entities.

“This newly united organization will be stronger,
more streamlined and better equipped to deliver services to the
building industry,” said National Association of Home Builders
president Gary Garczynski. “It will also be better able to combat
challenges to adoption of the International Residential Code the
first national residential building code developed with significant
home builder input and a focus on housing affordability,” he
added.

The NAHB applauded the merger as a means of
implementing a “simple, user-friendly, stand-alone” nationwide
housing code.
