New Building Code To Be Based On I-Codes
July 18, 2007

The International Code Council will share building safety knowledge and technical expertise with Saudi Arabia, according to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the U.S.-based Code Council and the Saudi Building Code National Committee (SBCNC). The 2003 and 2006 International Codes will be the basis for a new Saudi Building Code to be implemented later this year.

The MOU calls for joint projects such as the development of building codes and specifications, preparation of technical information services and publications, and the development of technical seminars. Under the agreement, representatives from the Code Council and the SBCNC will meet in both the U.S. and Saudi Arabia to exchange technical expertise in support of building code-related activities and the promotion of technologies, research, publications and services.

The Code Council also is working with Mexico to develop residential construction standards based on the International Residential Code and supporting code development efforts in several Caribbean nations. I-Codes also are used by the U.S. Department of Defense to guide the construction of military bases and other facilities abroad.
