The International Code Council (ICC), on behalf of Coalition for Current Safety Codes (CCSC), presented NEMA with a certificate of appreciation for the association’s commitment to public safety through the development and adoption of safety codes. NEMA is the first recipient of any award given by the CCSC.
CCSC was founded by the ICC and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to advance safety by advocating for the adoption of current building, sustainability, electrical, and life safety codes.
NEMA Vice President Kyle Pitsor (center) accepted the certificate and praised the coalition, noting that timely adoption by states of the national model code schedule is vitally important. “That is why NEMA supports a three-year timeframe to coincide with the model code revision cycles for electrical, life safety, and energy,” he said.
