Stair Geometry, Window Sill Heights on Hearings Agenda
Stair geometry, minimal window sill heights, carbon monoxide detectors and energy-efficiency requirements are among the issues on which NAHB Construction, Codes and Standards staff will provide testimony at the Final Action Hearings for the first 18-month development cycle of the International Codes. The hearings will be held May 17-20 in Overland Park, KS.
At the hearings, the general membership of the International Code Council will consider comments received from the public in response to decisions made by the Code Development Committees at initial hearings last fall. The membership will vote to affirm, amend or disapprove the committees’ decisions based upon the public comments and any additional testimony.
These hearings are the final step prior to the publication of the 2005 addendum to the 2003 editions of the International Codes; the changes approved at these hearings will be included in the 2006 editions of the codes.
