Code Council to lead the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to ISO Technical Committee on buildings
The International Code Council was recently appointed as the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (US TAG) administrator to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee 59 (ISO/TC 59), which has oversight over the development of ISO standards related to buildings and civil engineering works. As the US TAG administrator, the Code Council is responsible for formulating the official United States position to proposals and within activities under the responsibility of ISO/TC 59, as well as for bringing to ISO any new work items that would support the broad efforts in the U.S. in this area of standardization. To ensure that all interested parties have an opportunity to contribute to the development of the U.S. position on key issues that are considered by ISO/TC 59, the Code Council is now soliciting stakeholders to participate in the US TAG.
