International Code Council CEO Dominic Sims was appointed by the American National Standards Institute Executive Committee as a member of the group’s National Policy Committee. The policy committee is in charge of broad-based policy and position decisions regarding national standards development process matters, government regulations and public policy issues.

Sims said it is “an honor” to be a member of the committee and to represent the interests of building safety professionals. “ICC develops several American national standards in accordance with ANSI’s Essential Requirements and has a great deal of respect for the work of the policy committee,” Sims added. “More than 1,500 standards are referenced in our international codes that act as a critical means for those standards to have a real impact on commerce.”

ANSI Vice President of Government Relations Scott Cooper is delighted to have Sims in the fold. “ANSI is very pleased to now be able to count Mr. Sims among our voting members of the National Policy Committee,” he said.
