Codes Development & Adoption Toolkit

Reasons to Actively Engage in
Codes Advocacy

1.     The potential cost to the commercial real estate community is huge – so are the potential benefits. In the 2013-2014 code cycle, it is estimated that BOMA’s codes program saved building owners approximately $6.00/sq ft on avoided costs by defeating overly burdensome codes proposals.
2.     Voting protocol at the International Code Council has changed. Voting members are now able to vote remotely. We need BOMA’s grassroots to educate this community on BOMA’s issues.

3.     BOMA is the only association with an active and robust codes advocacy program. If we don’t do it, who will?
