Green Code Asking for Comment

We've been keeping an eye on the ICC's development of the International Green Construction Code (IGCC). A new version was released March 15, and the ICC is soliciting feedback and support.

For building product manufacturers, it's very important to understand and anticipate the impact this model code may have on your products. (See our post "How Will the International Green Construction Code Affect Your Product?" for background.) In the current edition, the code is defined enough that you can easily see the intent, but still has many reviews ahead of it. If you haven't yet read it, now may be the perfect time.

Comments on the current version are due May 14. A public hearing will be held in Chicago in August. The final version is scheduled for publication in early 2012.
