International Code Council to work with Industry on development of new ANSI Standards
As an ANSI accredited standard developing organization, the International Code Council (ICC) is partnering with the Modular Building Institute (MBI) in the development of two new comprehensive standards.
The International Code Council recently accepted applications for the ICC Off-Site and Modular Construction Standard Consensus Committee. Once appointed, this committee will convene to develop two new ICC off-site and modular construction standards: ICC 1200 -202X Standard for Off-Site Construction: Planning, Design, Fabrication and Assembly, and ICC 1205 – 202X Standard for Off-Site Construction: Inspection and Regulatory Compliance.
ICC 1200-202X addresses all facets of the off-site construction process including: planning; designing; fabricating; transporting; and assembling commercial and residential building elements.
ICC 1205 – 202X addresses the inspection, approval and regulatory compliance of off-site residential and commercial construction components and their assembly and completion at the final building site. This includes: permitting; in-plant and on-site final inspections; third party inspections; the role of Industrialized Building Departments, state modular programs and the Authority Having Jurisdiction.
These standards include componentized, panelized and modularized elements but will not apply to HUD Manufactured Housing or “tiny homes.”
