About the ICC: The International Code Council was formed in 1994, with the intention of being a non-profit organization which would research and develop a single set of construction codes. The organization was founded by International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO), Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc. (BOCA), and Southern Building Code Congress International, Inc. (SBCCI). Before the ICC was formed, these three organizations developed three different model codes that were used throughout the United States. There came a need for one standard of code, which created the need for the ICC. They created a blanket code for the United States, but also without regional boundaries which is the International Code. Today fifty states and the District of Columbia all use the International Codes provided by the ICC. Their mission is to “protect the health, safety, and welfare of people by creating safe buildings and communities.” The organization has continued to dedicate itself to the development of standards and codes used in design build projects to create a structurally safe and sound environment for all involved.
