ATLANTA, GA — A newly formed Code Development Committee will allow the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) to serve as a “significant player” in the development of model building codes.

“This committee will provide ASHRAE with a stronger voice in development of U.S. model building codes,” said Bruce Hunn, ASHRAE director of technology. “The committee will provide ASHRAE consensus recommendations for code changes, as well as review and take positions on code changes proposed by others to U.S. model building codes.”

The committee, which will report to the existing Code Interaction Subcommittee, will prepare consensus-developed recommendations on proposed revisions to various codes, primarily those of the International Code Council. The committee will also consider comments from ASHRAE members on proposed changes from other organizations.
