COALITION FOR CURRENT SAFETY CODES
The Coalition for Current Safety Codes (CCSC) was founded by the International Code Council (ICC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and is aimed at advancing safety by advocating for the adoption of current building, sustainability, electrical and life safety codes.
This coalition will create more public awareness and support for the adoption of codes that protect health and welfare.Coalition members will explain the benefits of public/private sector partnerships that provide a robust system of codes and standards involving all stakeholders.
While economic challenges and budget cuts have obscured the benefits of up to date building codes, the fact remains the delaying the adoption of these codes leaves jurisdictions in the position of eventually having to ‘catch up’ in a frantic, expensive, labor and training intensive process that is detrimental to the private sector.
We invite all within the codes and standards community, industry, public safety advocates and many others to work together with us to ensure the US remains the leader in the industrialized world, providing the safest built environment and the most contemporary and effective safety precautions for our citizens.
