Here's the latest on the Comprehensive Consensus Codes™
Protecting the public´s safety with codes, services, and support.

NFPA is a worldwide leader in protecting public safety through its multi-faceted approach that includes scientifically-based safety codes and standards, certification and training, research, and public education programs.

International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is an international leader in enhancing public safety through its work in the plumbing and mechanical communities.

American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) advances the science of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration for public benefit through standards development, research, and continuing education.

Western Fire Chiefs Association (WFCA) is a promulgator of one of the most widely adopted fire codes in the United States.

ANSI Accreditation

Accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) demonstrates a code development organization´s commitment to input from all interested parties. ANSI accredits code developers that adhere to the guiding principles of consensus, due process, and openness.
