ICC Group B Code Development Update

The International Code Council (ICC) has been busy this year reviewing Group B code change proposals for the 2021 edition of the International Codes (I-Codes). Group B codes include the International Residential Code (IRC), International Building Code (IBC), and International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).

The ICC’s Committee Action Hearings were held in Albuquerque, NM this past spring. Committees to these respective codes reviewed hundreds of proposals and made determinations about whether to approve (as submitted or as modified) or disapprove each proposal that was heard.
