Building Code Update


This technical paper reviews the Model Building Code process of the International Code Council (ICC) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Building 5000 Code and addresses SMACNA National's position with regards to the efforts of the code community to develop a single set of comprehensive and coordinated national codes. SMACNA National has long been involved in the code setting process to ensure that the SMACNA Standards currently utilized by the HVAC industry would be included as the basis for duct construction.
