Codes and Standards Overview

Building codes and standards affect much of the ready mixed concrete construction in the United States. The purpose of any building code is to provide a safe building for all occupants, owners and emergency responders. Building codes are intended to provide a prescriptive requirement for building construction and are enforced at the local or state governmental level. Individual state and local governments are free to adopt their own codes; however, most adopt model building codes that are developed and maintained by the International Code Council (ICC). The ICC publishes the International Building Code (IBC, International Residential Code (IRC), International Energy Conservation Code, among others.

Through participation on codes committees and work with associated organizations, NRMCA's Codes and Standards programs helps to develop codes that are most responsive to the issues affecting our industry. The Association's programs also are aimed at increasing the ready mixed concrete industry's awareness of the codes and standards development process.
