Volunteers Needed to Help Develop New Standard on Remote Virtual Inspection for Water Performance

The International Code Council is currently accepting applications for the Remote Virtual Inspection for Energy and Water Performance in Buildings Standards Committee (ERVI).

As ANSI-accredited standards-developing organizations, ICC and RESNET have joined together to develop a new standard that will provide guidance for implementing Remote Virtual Inspection (RVI) for energy code compliance and for building water and energy-efficiency performance. It will provide criteria for virtual code inspections conducted by performance raters for checking all aspects of permitted construction for compliance with energy codes and other energy-related applicable laws and regulations. The standard will address using RVI to inspect a building’s indoor and outdoor water use performance as determined by standard ANSI/RESNET/ICC 850 and to inspect a building’s energy use performance as determined by ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301.

Once appointed, this committee will convene to develop the new BSR/ICC/RESNET 1450-202x.  Since this is a joint ICC/RESNET standard, appointments to the committee will be made by the ICC Board and RESNET.

The standard will be developed following the ANSI-approved RESNET process.

The committee will be a balanced committee of 12 members. According, including, but not limited to, homebuilders, HVAC contractors, insulation contractors, building remodelers, weatherization companies, insulation companies, appliance manufacturers, product distributors, program administrators (e.g., government agencies, utilities, home energy-rating companies, and residential building energy performance organizations), building officials, and state and local governments should apply. A full description of the Interest Categories is included in the application linked below. Any stakeholder is welcome to apply, and ICC membership is not required. Click here for an application. The (ERVI) acronym is to be used to identify the committee on the application.

The committee will conduct business via conference calls and emails. However, if travel becomes necessary, ICC Governmental Member Representatives are authorized to travel at ICC’s expense when participating at the meetings. All others are responsible for funding their participation on this committee.

The deadline to submit an application is August 17, 2021.
