The Building Product Listing Program offers manufacturers certification that indicates to code officials they are approving products that meet the requirements of specific consensus standards referenced in building codes. Click here to view the categories (www.icc-es.org/ESLcategories) .To qualify for the program, a product must meet requirements in a standard specifically listed in the applicable International Codes. Products already referenced in the International Building Code® or the International Residential Code®, and used as intended by the codes, also qualify for an ICC-ES Building Product Listing.
Additionally, ICC-ES is now able to certify many building products for the Canadian market following accreditation of the program by the Standards Council of Canada. The Building Product Listing Program meets Canadian requirements, providing manufacturers with a way to indicate to Canadian code officials, designers and specifiers that products comply with consensus standards referenced in the National Building Code of Canada. Manufacturers can go to the jurisdictions in both the U.S. and Canada and have their products readily approved by the code officials of the two countries.
If the product successfully meets applicable requirements, ICC-ES will issue the listing within eight weeks or less of the initial application. To find out if your product qualifies for this program, contact an ICC-ES Connect+ Customer Care representative at 1-800-423-6587 ext. 1.
