Cover page for the Official Notice of Appeals for the 2019 Group B Cycle

As we reported in January, the Group B 2021 I-Codes contain a number of significant improvements in the realm of energy efficiency and building science.

In March, the ICC reported it had received complaints regarding the online governmental consensus vote and its Validation Committee reviewed a third-party intendent audit of that process and ruled there were no voting irregularities.

In June, the ICC created a webpage tracking the six appeals it had received.

On July 8, the ICC posted the official Notice of Appeals, which outlines the timeline for appeals hearings (which will be announced by August 7), identifies the four-member appeals board, and outlines how interested parties can submit their comments prior to the start of the appeals hearings in late August or early September.
