Note: The Region I executive board has agreed to take no positions on ICC code proposals during the 2021 code development cycles. However, in order to provide information that may be relevant to our members, we are posting code proposal voting guides from our member chapters, to assist our members in the ICC Online Governmental Voting Period.

ICC-LABC CODE COORDINATION MESSAGE:
ONLINE GOVERNMENTAL CONSENSUS VOTING
The ICC Los Angeles Basin Chapter Administration Committee (Committee) has partnered with several participating chapters, organizations and jurisdictions to facilitate and strengthen code coordination efforts in California (CA). It is the Committee’s goal that increasing collaboration among the various participants regarding code change proposals will help to ensure that the voices of all building safety professionals and code officials in CA are uniform and consistent to the extent possible. As such, the Committee believes that these efforts will help to enable CA to have a significant impact on the code development process at the national level and to become a strong leader and advocate for building safety.
In furtherance of that goal, this message is being sent to building safety professionals and code officials that are designated as Governmental Member Voting Representatives (GMRV) in CA regarding the final step in the voting process established by the International Code Council (ICC). The current cycle for ICC’s 2018 Group A Code Development Process will result in the publication of the 2021 Edition of the International Codes (I-Codes). Members of this Committee and participating chapters, organizations and jurisdictions in CA actively participated in both the Committee Action Hearings in Columbus, Ohio and the Public Comment Hearings in Richmond, Virginia to provide testimony, submit public comments and vote on proposed code changes. The culmination of these efforts has resulted in the development of a Consensus Voting Recommendation document for the Online Governmental Consensus Voting (OGCV) that begins on November 19, 2018 and concludes on December 7, 2018. This document consolidates and summarizes in an easy to read format the desired voting positions and recommendations of the various participants. It is intended to serve as a simple guide for all GMVR in CA when evaluating what proposed code changes to support or oppose. This document and other resources can be found on the ICC Los Angeles Basin Chapter website at www.icclabc.org.
Regardless of your position on the proposed code changes, the Committee strongly urge all GMVR in CA to get involve and exercise your ability to vote to maximize our collective strength in the code development process. If you have any questions whatsoever regarding the Committee’s code coordination efforts or what your role may be to support these efforts now or in the future, please feel free to the chairperson for the Committee.
Thank you for your time and support!
