The International Code Council (ICC) publishes more than a dozen national model building codes and standards. Those codes are updated every three years and are divided into two groups (Group A and Group B) to stagger the code development process.
Work began on the Group A codes in January 2018, and ICC recently completed the Code Development Hearings on the covered codes. This document summarizes the most prominent issues of concern for the apartment industry during this code cycle.
Final Action Code Hearings will be held in October 2018 and will determine what is included in the 2021 code editions, which are published in 2020.
