CODE COMPLIANCE. Model swimming pool codes require installed systems to comply with
ICC-SRCC Standard 400 (the standard that provides the technical basis of the OG-400
program). Therefore, by certifying your system to OG-400, you are demonstrating compliance
with ICC-SRCC Standard 400 and meeting these codes.
An examples is the 2021 International Swimming Pool & Spa Code (ISPSC). Note: Many codes
have other requirements above and beyond OG-400 compliance. OG-400 only provides
assessment to the ICC 902/APSP 902/SRCC 400 standard.
SAFETY AND DURABILITY. During the course of certification, ICC-SRCC’s engineers review
the components and arrangement of the system to be sure that they comply with the minimum
requirements set in the ICC 902/APSP 400/SRCC 400 Standard. This provides users with
assurance that the system meets the standard’s comprehensive requirements for safety,
durability and minimum performance.
WEB-BASED CERTIFICATES. All systems certified under the OG-400 program are provided
with an OG-400 certificate and are listed on the ICC-SRCC website, www.solar-rating.org. The
certificates provide the certified performance ratings for the system and a complete schematic of
the approved system. Code officials and incentive programs recognize ICC-SRCC’s website as
the authoritative source of up-to-date information on certified solar water heating systems. They
use the information and certificates there to verify certification, and to confirm that systems are
installed in compliance with the certification. This results in faster and more accurate
