International Code Council (ICC)

The International Code Council (ICC) was established in 1994 as a non-profit organization dedicated to developing a single set of comprehensive and coordinated national model construction codes. The founders of the ICC are:

  • Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc. (BOCA)
  • International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO)
  • Southern Building Code Congress International, Inc. (SBCCI)

Counties or municipalities who adopt the codes may amend sections of them to adapt to individual communities.
