Certification of building and construction-related products. ICC operates a number of committees and councils related to the ifc and maintenance of codes and standards. It provides an international forum for discussion and deliberation about building design, construction methods, safety, performance requirements, technological advances and innovative products.

The applicability of this code to piping systems extends from the point of delivery to the connections with the appliance s and includes the design, materials, components, fabrication, assembly, installation, testing, inspection, operation and maintenance of such piping systems.
