CPI is dedicated to supporting the highest quality building codes and standards worldwide. CPI members advocate in front of various code groups including ASTM International, ICC, ISO, NFPA and more. Codes and standards for building and construction make enormous contributions to most aspects of our lives—from product quality, reliability, efficiency and safety.
Codes and standards are useful to industrial and business organizations of all types, from governments and other regulatory bodies, to trade officials, to suppliers and customers of products and services in both public and private sectors, and, ultimately, to people in general in their roles as consumers and end users.
Knowledge of codes and standards is essential to companies in the building and construction field. Codes mandate or encourage increased energy efficiency, resulting in the use of more and better insulation. Polyurethane insulation and other building products can help achieve those energy efficiency requirements. Many U.S. cities, counties and states that adopt codes have adopted the International Codes or “I” codes, which are building codes developed by the International Code Council (ICC). The ICC develops codes used to construct residential and commercial buildings, including homes and schools.
