The International Code Council-aligned ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) is reinstating its Building Department Service, which assists code officials in determining material, product or system suitability for specific project sites. ICC-ES technical staff evaluate a wide range of products, including fire-resistive assemblies, sandwich panels, classified roof coverings, and wall-covering systems.
The program is returning due to increased demand, notes ICC-ES President Shahin Moinian, adding: “Code officials trust us for technical evaluations of building products, and we are the only accredited agency to conduct product evaluation to our acceptance criteria. In addition to our evaluation report[s] and listing program[s], we can now better serve manufacturing clients and code officials by offering this specialized service.” — ICC-ES Building Department Service, 800/423-6587; www.icc-es.org
