Internationally, code officials recognize the need for a modern, up-to-date code governing the design, construction, alteration, repair and maintenance of swimming pools, spas, hot tubs and aquatic facilities. This 2015 edition of the International Swimming Pool and Spa Code™ is designed to meet this need through model code regulations in a single document that contains clear and specific requirements that safeguard the public health and safety in all communities.
This 2015 edition is fully compatible with all of the International Codes® (I-Codes®) published by the International Code Council (ICC®), including the International Building Code®, International Energy Conservation Code®, International Existing Building Code®, International Fire Code®, International Fuel Gas Code®, International Green Construction Code®, International Mechanical Code®, ICC Performance Code®, International Plumbing Code®, International Private Sewage Disposal Code®, International Property Maintenance Code®, International Residential Code®, International Wildland-Urban Interface Code® and International Zoning Code®.
The International Swimming Pool and Spa Code provisions provide many benefits, among which is the model code development process that offers an international forum for code officials, design professionals, pool and industry representatives and other interested parties to discuss performance and prescriptive code requirements relative to pool and spa safety. This forum provides an excellent arena to debate proposed revisions. This model code also encourages international consistency in the application of provisions.
