BOMA wants standardized codes
The issue? BOMA does not like the statement from both groups that they would “collaborate on a compatible set of consensus codes and standards for health and safety in the built environment” without including the International Code Council in the process.
This announcement, BOMA said, is a step backwards in the effort to develop a single “family” of building, fire, plumbing, and mechanical codes.
“BOMA strongly supports the development and implementation of a unified set of building codes as a means of achieving a more consistent and reasonable approach to code enforcement and interpretation,” said BOMA president Richard D. Baier.
