2018 IECC Code Voting Extended

The Online Governmental Consensus Voting period is open until November 27.

ICC announced that all eligible voting ICC Members that the Online Governmental Consensus Voting period has been extended past November 22 to close at 11:59 p.m. PST on November 27.  The change is to accommodate the many voters wishing to participate and so that additional resources can be added to the cdpACCESS site.

In order to ensure that all ICC members are well informed and able to participate in the OGCV, a helpful set of instructions can be found here to explain the layout of the OGCV ballot and the voting procedure.

As a reminder, anyone with a My ICC account can access the OGCV, however, only eligible voters can vote. Only those code change proposals considered on the Individual Consideration Agenda at the 2016 Public Comment Hearings (PCH) in Kansas City, MO are on the OGCV. All other proposals were on the Consent Agenda which was block voted at the PCH. The Final Actions on the proposals on the Consent Agenda are the actions taken on each proposal at the 2016 Committee Action Hearings (CAH) in Louisville, Ky.

CodeWatcher urges your support of RE-179, the EECC’s Flex Points proposal also endorsed by the US Conference of Mayors. RE-179 is the only proposal on the cdpACCESS ballot that would improve the efficiency of the 2018 IECC by 5%.

The Energy Efficient Codes Coalition (EECC) has simplified the process by creating a comprehensive guide of all 180 proposals that impact energy efficiency and a fast-track guide of 119 proposals for which EECC offers voting recommendations.
