WDMA Launches Building and Energy Code Resource Center

February 29th, 2016 by Editor

The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) has unveiled the the WDMA Code Resource Center, an online portal for WDMA members that provides access to state and local building and energy code adoption information for the International Code Council (ICC)’s national model building codes.

These include the  International Residential Code, the International Building Code, the International Energy Efficiency Code and the International Existing Building Code.

The information comes from state and local government agencies and provides links to adopted codes, state and local amendments, state agencies and key contacts.

This service is intended assist members by providing more direct access to state and local code information in one location rather than having to search for the information themselves, and then maneuver through the various state websites to locate the information they need. That exercise is further complicated as no two states make the information available the same way, and states have differing authorities regarding code adoption and enforcement as well as differing processes for adopting model codes, making amendments, etc. This resource brings better consistency for locating and accessing this type of information for WDMA members.

WDMA will continue to enhance the WDMA Code Resource Center. The next phase will provide additional information that is relevant in each state, such as state and local code adoption calendars, summaries of notable differences in particular requirements, and special requirements in a state.

WDMA members can access the WDMA Code Resource Center here. You will need to be logged into the WDMA website to access it. For login and password assistance, contact TJ Jacobs at tjacobs@wdma.com.

WDMA members with questions about the Code Resource Center may contact Jeff Inks at jinks@wdma.com. Non-members interested in joining WDMA may contact Jonathan Paine at jpaine@wdma.com.
