MADCAD Online Referenced Standards: As discussed over the past few months, NMCOA has fallen short on the number of participating jurisdictions in the NMCOA MADCAD subscription for 2021. The Board will continue to look at options for this program and how NMCOA can continue to provide this valuable resource of code referenced standards to its members as a reasonable cost.
For those not familiar with the benefits of MADCAD, the referenced standards, as noted in the codes, are actually considered part of the code. You can find this reference in Section R102.4 of the 2015 MRC, and Section 101.4 of the 2015 MBC. Similar references can be found in the electrical rules, the mechanical and the plumbing codes. This means that the code books only contain part of the requirements of the code. Without access to the referenced standards, how does an inspector perform their duties as code officials?
The cost to have the referenced standards as a physical library are far more costly than many jurisdictions can afford. The MADCAD online library is a low cost way of accessing many of the standards referenced in the codes. That is the reason that NMCOA has worked with MADCAD to provide a subscription based access to its members since 2016. If your jurisdiction is not currently subscribed to MADCAD and you would like further information, please email your request to email@example.com . NMCOA will be happy to get your jurisdiction enrolled into the subscription program.
BUILDING SAFETY MONTH
Each year the ICC encourages jurisdictions around the country to celebrate Building Safety Month. One way to recognize building safety month is through the approval of a Building Safety Proclamation by local government officials. NMCOA, as an organization has approved a proclamation recognizing it members for the important role each one plays within their communities to assure safe and code compliant construction. The 2021 NMCOA Building Safety Month Proclamation has been posted below. In addition, a generic proclamation is also included that local jurisdictions can use to create their own proclamation. Feel free to download this ICC guide document, and use it to create your own proclamation to take to your local officials for approval.
Please add the NMCOA email address to your mailbox as future emails may be sent through this address. firstname.lastname@example.org
