2016 is well underway and there are many exciting developments happening with our coalition. One of the most important efforts we’re engaged in right now involves the code proposals we created together with various stakeholders (including our SBC members) last Fall. These are codes that will impact your organization in the years ahead.
ICC Group B Committee Action Hearings Update
Recently our SBC Executive Director, Chief Alan Perdue participated in the ICC Group B Committee Action Hearings to advocate not only for the proposals we created together last Fall, but also similar proposals in alignment with our core mission as well.
According to Chief Perdue:
“The committee has been extremely tough disapproving many of the 400 plus proposals that have come before them so far. We did what many at the hearings said was a fine job with our proposals.”
The breakdown for SBC proposals was as follows:
Approved as submitted: 10
Approved as modified: 2
We will be hosting a call this Thursday at 11am Pacific (2pm Eastern) in which Chief Perdue will be covering the full details of the results of these hearings including how these proposals may affect your organization in the near future.
This call will cover a few key topics:
- How the in-building public safety wireless code adoption process works.
- How different interpretations of the code can affect your organization.
- What in-building public safety wireless codes could look like in the near future.
