What Does It Mean to Be ICC-Certified?

Working in the construction industry, you have most likely heard about ICC-certified foundation products. This classification adds a certain level of credibility to a product, providing reassurance that the product is of the highest quality and will be dependable for use in any of your construction projects. But what exactly does it mean to be ICC-certified?

The International Code Council (ICC) is a U.S. association dedicated to creating high standards for compliance processes to ensure safe, affordable, sustainable, and resilient structures. The ICC is the leading source of model codes and standards and building safety solutions that include product evaluation, accreditation, technology, training, and certification. Members of this council are committed to preserving health, safety, and welfare in the built environment. Many cities and county governments across the country model their construction codes and regulations after the ICC’s standardized building codes. In addition to drafting building codes, the ICC certifies inspectors, whose job is to approve construction projects based on these high standards.

The ICC-Evaluation Services (ICC-ES), a branch of ICC, also reviews products used in the construction industry, and certifies those products that meet their high standards for safety and durability. When you choose an ICC-certified product for your construction project, you can rest assured that product meets or exceeds the most stringent industry standards, as the product has been tested and verified through an objective and impartial process. An ICC-certification isn’t simply a stamp of approval, it’s an indication that the product has undergone extensive testing and verification processes, and proved worthy of this classification.
