    Executive order calls for federal buildings to comply with the 2015 IWUIC.

    President Obama signed an executive order requiring all buildings above 5,000 square feet located on Federal lands to be in compliance with ICC's 2015 International Wildland-Urban Interface Code (IWUIC). The Obama administration announced the executive order at the White House Roundtable on Wildfires in the Wildland-Urban Interface, which was attended by Georgia State Fire Marshal Dwayne Garriss, who serves as Vice President of the ICC Board of Directors.

    This marks the latest in a series of White House support for resilient building codes and standards to address the impact of climate change and natural disasters. President Obama declared May as National Building Safety Month to recognize and pay tribute to those who ensure the safety and resilience of the nation's buildings, and to reaffirm the U.S. commitment to upholding and abiding by strong and effective building safety standards.
