The International Code Council’s Code Development Hearings will be held in Dallas on April 29—May 8 with attention directed to more than 3,000 code change proposals. These hearings are the first step in the process where the proposals are first sorted by content and then aired to an ICC committee with responsibility for that subject area. Judgment is then passed on them. Later, the committee’s recommendations are considered by the full ICC assembly comprised of code officials and fire service personnel from around the nation. Many code proposals affect EIFS and its substrates, and EIMA will have representatives there protecting EIFS interests. One onerous proposal will reduce the fire testing required for a competing system. EIMA will oppose it.
