Public Comments Invited for 2nd Draft, National Green Building Standard

May 3, 2012

A 45-day public comment period for the second draft of the 2012 National Green Building Standard (ICC 700) opened Friday, April 27, 2012. As part of the process approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), only those changes to the first draft that were approved by the standard’s consensus committee during its February meeting are open for public comment. The deadline is June 11. Also released was the Pre-Public Comments Report (PCR), which documents the changes the committee members made  — and why they made them – based on comments received on the first draft.

Initiated in 2007 by the International Code Council and NAHB, the 2008 National Green Building Standard (ICC 700) was developed by a 42-member consensus committee and approved by ANSI in January 2009, making it the first point-based rating system for green residential construction, remodeling and land development to be approved by ANSI. As an ANSI-approved standard, the document is subject to periodic updates as a way to ensure that advances in building codes, technology, and other developments can be considered for incorporation – and this new version of the standard is expected to reflect those changes.
