International Code Council Board Approves SBTC
July 31, 2008

The International Code Council Board approved the creation of a Sustainable Building Technology Committee (SBTC) to support its many ongoing efforts in green, sustainable and safe construction.

The SBTC will provide an open forum for discussion of sustainability and ensure that Code Council members and stakeholders have a key voice in the critical debate. The SBTC will be charged with:

  • Developing proposed code changes and analysis/response of related changes proposed for the Code Council family of codes and standards,
  • Participating in the development of Council guidelines to assist members and jurisdictional authorities in implementing sustainable construction practices in their communities,
  • Providing input on related Council programs such as green training and a green certification program for First Preventers, code officials who ensure buildings are safe and energy efficient,
  • Serving in an advisory role to the Council’s Board of Directors regarding the development of new International Codes or Standards in support of sustainable construction practices.
