International Code Council Earns Accreditation to Develop National Standards of Canada

The International Code Council is the latest standards development organization (SDO) to receive accreditation from the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). It joins a select group of organizations that contribute to the development of National Standards of Canada for the benefit of Canadians.

The International Code Council has been at the forefront of providing model codes and standards, as well as innovative building safety solutions.

Today, the organization takes a significant leap forward with its newly accredited status, recognizing its expertise and dedication to ensuring safe, affordable, and sustainable communities and buildings across the globe.

“This accreditation by SCC marks a significant milestone in our journey to provide our stakeholders options and enhance our ability to achieve our mission of safety, sustainability and affordability through building science” said Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “It reinforces our commitment to providing the information, tools, and resources that our members rely on, building safety professionals turn to, and the public trusts.”

“We are thrilled to welcome the International Code Council as our newest accredited SDO,” said Elias Rafoul, SCC Vice-President, Accreditation Services Branch. “By accrediting organizations like the International Code Council, we ensure that industry, government, and consumers are provided with standards that meet their specific needs. Our accreditation program, guided by internationally recognized best practices and Canadian principles, guarantees equal access, diverse representation, and transparent development processes.”
