ANSI Partners with ICC to Electronically Distribute Codes in Spanish

The International Code Council® (ICC®) has partnered with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to distribute the recently released Spanish versions of the 2006 International Codes® in electronic format. These codes include the International Building, Fire, Residential, Energy Conservation, Plumbing, Mechanical, Fuel Gas and Property Maintenance Codes.

The popularity of the International Codes globally has provided the impetus for the Code Council to pursue development of these codes in multiple languages, officials said. In addition to interest outside the United States, ICC also has experienced an increase in demand for the codes in Spanish from the Spanish-speaking community within the United States.

"The Code Council is committed to partnering with others to provide the most current building safety solutions in as many different formats and languages as possible in order to serve the global community," said International Code Council Business and Product Development Senior Vice President Mark Johnson. "The Code Council is pleased to partner with ANSI to make it easier for building professionals to have access to the Spanish Codes through the Institute's state of the art electronic delivery system."

"ANSI is pleased to partner with member organizations such as the ICC to make the documents that are needed by the building industry more widely accessible," stated George Gulla, ANSI's vice president of publications. "ICC's codes and standards are well-recognized and have an established user base in English-speaking economies; the new Spanish-language translation will help to facilitate their implementation in other markets."

Having the codes available electronically and in Spanish will not only save time in accessing them but will expand their usage and application as well, thereby enhancing the overall level of safety. The 2006 International Codes in Spanish can be obtained by visiting the ANSI eStandards Store at http://webstore.ansi.org.
