Code Council issues statement responding to questions from House Energy and Commerce

Codes and standards are a critical component in reducing energy use, creating energy savings and combating the impacts of a changing climate. For over four decades, the International Code Council and its legacy organizations have led the development of energy codes that have reduced the impact of energy use on the planet and saved consumers billions of dollars. In January, the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce contacted the Code Council to request information about its code development process and the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). This week, the Code Council released information to the Committee that explains our role in helping communities around the world become more energy efficient. Download the response here.
