ICC Seeks Volunteers to Develop New Water Distribution, Drainage, and Venting Standard

The International Code Council is currently accepting applications for the Sizing Water Distribution, Drainage, and Venting Standard Consensus Committee (IS-SWDDV).

As an ANSI-accredited standards developing organization, the Code Council is developing this new standard to establish minimum requirements for a comprehensive design methodology for sizing water distribution, sanitary drainage, and vent piping systems for residential, mixed-use, and institutional occupancies. The standard will consider the technical advances in estimating water usage patterns and post-Covid-19 societal changes.

For more information on the ICC procedures for developing standards, please refer to the ICC Consensus Procedures posted at iccsafe.org/cs/standards/Pages/default.aspx.

In accordance with ICC’s Consensus Procedures, the committee will be a balanced committee of 12–15 members of the following Interest Categories: Manufacturer, Builder, Standards Promulgator/Testing Laboratory, User, Utility, Consumer, Public Segment, Government Regulator, and Insurance. Accordingly, stakeholders including, but not limited to, code officials, design professionals, and installers should apply. Any stakeholder is welcome to apply, and ICC membership is not required. Appointments will made by the ICC Board of Directors.
