Code Development Activities
The International Association of Building Officials (IABO) is committed to representing building code officials in the development of building codes and standards based on: building science, coordinated with appropriate supporting data and reasonable intent; collaboration with all interested parties; and appropriate fire and life safety of all people that reside, work and play within our built environment.
It is IABO’s intent to take a leadership role in the development of all building codes and standards, assuring a balance of interests, which help to assure that the building codes and standards are adopted nationwide. Our code development team of experienced building and safety code officials actively participate in code development activities by: submitting changes through the code development process; providing testimony; and serving on code development, oversight, and administrative committees.
We invite building officials or members of their respective staffs, nationwide, to join us as we continue this effort.
