What happens when the codes and standards change?

New versions of model codes are released generally released every 3-5 years in North America. New versions of standards are released periodically, but not always on a predictable schedule. When any of the codes or standards to which ICC-SRCC lists solar heating and cooling products are updated, ICC-SRCC staff will review the new documents for changes impacting listings. Staff will then communicate a schedule to implement the new version of the code or standard in the ICC-SRCC Listing Program. After the effective date, all new listings and renewals will be conducted to the new code or standard version.

ICC-SRCC staff reviews certifications and listings at the time of renewal and will determine whether they require updates. If manual changes or testing are required to update a certification or listing, listees will be provided with a reasonable period of time submit the updated materials.
