Code Hearings Slated for August
May 11, 2010

As part of its commitment to safe and sustainable buildings, the International Code Council announces public comment hearings on Public Version 1.0 of the International Green Construction Code (IGCC). The hearings are the next step in the Code Council’s governmental consensus code development process that will result in publishing the 2012 IGCC. Version 1.0 continues to be offered as a resource tool for jurisdictions seeking guidance on amending existing codes or writing new codes regulating green construction.

The hearings will be held Aug. 14th-22nd at The Westin O’Hare (Rosemont, Ill.) in suburban Chicago. Advanced registration to attend the hearings is recommended. Public comments, which can be submitted until May 14th, will serve as the agenda for the hearings. Comments will be posted online on July 2nd.

Comments received and testimony presented to a hearing committee at the August hearings will be the basis for Public Version 2.0 of the IGCC, scheduled for release in November. Version 2.0 will serve as the next version for code change submittals, due Jan. 3rd, and will be considered at May 2011 code development hearings. The final action hearings will be held in November 2011.
