The History of ICC
ICC was established in 1994 as a non-profit organization dedicated to developing a single set of comprehensive and coordinated national model construction codes. The founders of ICC are:
- Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc. (BOCA)
- International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO)
- Southern Building Code Congress International, Inc. (SBCCI)
Since the early 1900’s, these non-profit organizations developed 3-separate sets of model codes used throughout the U.S. Although regional code development had been effective, the time came for a single set of codes and the three groups created the ICC; and by developing codes without regional limitations, the International Codes. They developed and inventory of comprehensive and coordinated International Codes including the International Building Code (along with 14 others).
