Hearings Schedule

Plan to join us for the Group A Public Comment Hearings—it is through your participation that the I-Codes continue to foster growth and affordability through innovation and safety.

Hearings schedule will be posted in September 2018.

The 2018 code development process continues immediately after the ICC Annual Conference with the Public Comment Hearings. The hearings provide an opportunity for participants to influence the 2021 I-Codes, the most widely-used and adopted set of building safety codes in the world. At the hearings, Governmental Member Voting Representatives vote on hundreds of proposed code changes on behalf of their respective jurisdictions. The 2018 Group A International Codes include:

  • International Building Code® (IBC®)—IBC-E, IBC-FS, IBC-G
  • International Fire Code® (IFC®)
  • International Fuel Gas Code® (IFGC®)
  • International Mechanical Code® (IMC®)
  • International Plumbing Code® (IPC®)
  • International Property Maintenance Code® (IPMC®)
  • International Private Sewage Disposal Code® (IPSDC®)
  • International Residential Code® (IRC®)—IRC-M, IRC-P
