From Model Codes to California Code Amendments and Adoption: The Code Development Process Explained
0.6 CEUs - ICC Preferred Provider Course #: 19750


Building Officials are tasked with the amendment and adoption of the latest California codes for their jurisdiction. What does this mean, why is it important, and how can it be done smoothly and effectively? This course covers everything that you need to know about the code development process and how revisions are incorporated in the International Code Council (ICC) and ultimately the State of California codes. Details are explained about the ICC Code Development Process leading to the publishing of the ICC family of codes and how the State of California uses the ICC codes as a model and amends them to create the suite of California codes. Specifics about the process are explained including: an in-depth examination of how the model codes are developed with directions on submitting proposed code changes and public comments and how the State of California through the California Building Standards Commission amends model codes for its own use. At the end of the course, attendees should be able to effectively participate in code development, understand how to affect revisions to the suite of building codes that are enforced in California, and be ready for the new set of codes that go into effect on January 1, 2020. A workbook is also be provided to all attendees to use as a resource.
