NEMA Honored for Commitment to Safety in the Built Environment

During the recent annual Building Safety Month reception at the International Code Council's (ICC) office in Washington, DC, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) was honored for its efforts to educate citizens on the importance of building safe, affordable and sustainable structures.

The Coalition for Current Safety Codes (CCSC), of which ICC is a co-founder, honored one of its first members, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) — an ICC Preferred Education Provider — with its first Certificate of Appreciation for NEMA's dedication to the ongoing development of codes and standards and to the adoption of the most up-to-date versions across the United States. NEMA also has been a longtime sponsor of ICC's Building Safety Month.

With this year's theme, "Building Codes: Driving Growth through Innovation, Resilience and Safety," many ICC members and stakeholders conducted special events and held proclamation signings to help raise awareness of Building Safety Month in their states and communities. By the end of May, well over 400 proclamations, resolutions and letters had been signed by state and local officials.
