Register with ICC For Group A by March 20, 2015
It’s time to register with ICC as your jurisdiction’s voting representative for Group A code development. The deadline to validate your eligibility to vote during the Online Assembly Floor Motions is March 20, 2015. If you are an ICC member and register by the deadline, you are set for the year. If you are an ICC member but you miss the March 20 deadline you can still vote at the Annual Business Meeting, Public Comment Hearing and Online Governmental Consensus Vote if you register by August 31, 2015.
To register, complete the short online questionnaire found at: Click here. It is that easy!
Group A code development includes IBC egress, fire safety and general, IRC mechanical and plumbing, IEBC, IFGC, IMC, IPC, IPMC, IPSDC, ISPSC, and IZC. ICC is using its new electronic voting system called cdpACCESS. (http://www.iccsafe.org/cs/cdpACCESS/Pages/default.aspx) and all approved voting representatives will be able to vote online.
There are two date ranges to put on your calendar for online voting (both are in 2015):
May 11 to 22; this is the on-line voting period for floor motions made at the Committee Action Hearings in Memphis, TN. You can read the code change and watch the testimony live online during the Committee Action Hearings or view it later during the May 11 to 22 voting period.
October 19 to 30; this is the on-line voting period for all final action proposals (those submitted via the Public Comment process). You can read the public comment and watch the testimony live online during the Public Comment Hearings (September 30thto October 7th) or view it later during the October 19 to 30 voting period.
The WABO Technical Code Development Committee (TCD) will be studying the Group A Code proposals and will develop a list of those code changes we support, those we oppose and those we will be monitoring. We will publish the list on the WABO website in early May. See the revised 2015 TCD meeting Schedule at: http://www.wabo.org/code-development.
