All fifty states and the District of Columbia have adopted the I-Codes® at the state or jurisdictional level.

The International Code Council uses a governmental consensus process to develop its codes. It is an open, inclusive process that allows input from all individuals and groups. Committees hear all code change proposals. Final decisions are made by ICC Voting Members – Governmental and Honorary Members – who, with no vested interests beyond public safety, represent the public’s best interest. An appeals process allows anyone to appeal a code change.
