Why an ICC-ES® Report or Listing?
ICC-ES is the United States' leading evaluation service for innovative construction materials and systems. ICC-ES works in conjunction with its parent organization, the International Code Council® (ICC®), to develop and foster safe and sustainable design and construction.

  • Widely accepted in Florida and throughout the United States
  • Written by experienced, in-house engineers who evaluate every application

Approving Innovation with Confidence
The leader in evaluating building products for compliance with the International Codes; ICC-ES performs technical evaluations of building products, components, methods and materials. With three signature programs, ICC-ES Evaluation Reports, ICC-ES VAR Environmental Reports and Plumbing Mechanical and Fuel Gas (PMG) Listings, ICC-ES offers evidence that products and systems comply with codes and/or standards and meet sustainable guidelines.

The evaluation process results in a report or listing on code compliance, which is available free of charge to code officials, contractors, specifiers, architects, engineers and anyone else with an interest in the building industry and construction. ICC-ES Evaluation Reports and listings are now embedded in eCodes Premium, directly connecting chapters and specific sections of ICC's 2006, 2009 and 1012 International Codes to related product reports or listings.

With the need to be green, ICC-ES now provides independent verification of products' sustainable attributes with its ICC-ES Environmental Program. The result is an ICC-ES VAR Environmental Report, which is available online at the conclusion of the process. Read more about the importance of an ICC-ES VAR Environmental Report here.

ICC-ES has established its trustworthiness among Florida building officials who recognize ICC-ES as a valuable resource for evaluation reports. In fact, passed legislation confirms that ICC-ES is an approved evaluation entity in the state since the inception of the mandatory product approval system and prior to that as one of the three model code organizations (MCOs). As a result of this legislation, ICC-ES report holders can use ICC-ES Evaluation Reports, showing our marks of conformity, as the technical basis for their applications when they seek statewide approval with the Florida Building Commission.
