Los Angeles Basin Chapter Coordinates Recommendations for the 2019 ICC Group B Code Development Cycle
CALBO takes pride in the statewide efforts of local ICC Chapters seeking to engage in the model code development process. This round of code change proposals is no different, and we wanted to share and disseminate a recent collaborative document developed by the Los Angeles Basin Chapter. Please find available, for your information only, recommendations for online governmental consensus voting relative to the 2019 ICC Group B Code Development Cycle for the 2021 editions of the International Codes. This document was developed by the ICC Los Angeles Basin Chapter Administration Committee, but includes the input and collaboration from the East Bay Chapter, Monterey Bay Chapter, Peninsula Chapter, Sacramento Valley Chapter, Ventura Chapter and CalChiefs Fire Prevention Officers.
As stated in the document, the ICC Los Angeles Basin Chapter Administration Committee – Code Coordination Effort (“LABC-AC”) is taking the lead to facilitate and strengthen code coordination efforts among the various participating chapters, organizations and jurisdictions in California (“CA”). It is the LABC-AC’s goal that increasing collaboration among the various participating CA chapters, organizations and jurisdictions regarding code change proposals will help ensure that the voices of all CA Governmental Member Voting Representatives (“GMVR”) are uniform and consistent. As such, the LABC-AC believes that these efforts will help to enable CA to have a significant impact on the code development process at the national level. The LABC-AC looks forward to working with participating members and interested parties in supporting these efforts and helping to make CA once again become a leader in the code development process.
CALBO strongly encourages all code officials to engage in the code development and change processes. Although CALBO focuses on state policy and rarely submits proposed changes to the model code-making bodies, we wanted to share this collaborative effort on behalf of California code officials. By sharing this information on our website, CALBO is not endorsing or soliciting positions on any of the proposals outlined below. Rather, this information is provided for your information only.
Special thanks to the ICC Los Angeles Basin Chapter for their leadership and coordination of these efforts. Additionally, special thanks to the many chapter members who contributed to this collective work.
