IFC has retained a code consultant to monitor proposed code changes and represent the interests of the passive fire protection community before the model code groups.
IFC meets at least three times per year to examine opportunities to effect code changes and provide direction to the code consultant. Between meetings, IFC communicates with members on a regular basis on the status of pending code issues and solicits input on IFC positions.
IFC regularly invites representatives from the model code groups and test laboratories to attend IFC meetings to address mutual issues of interest and concern. These regular meetings provide invaluable insights into the code development process and are a valuable communication bridge with the model code groups.
All IFC activities are closely monitored by IFC legal counsel to guard against any unintended antitrust or other legal problems.
IFC supports a contractor network, which, through IFC mailings and meetings is kept informed about important industry issues.
IFC provides speakers and is regularly represented at code and construction professionals conferences and seminars.
We invite you to join with us and play an active role in promoting life safety issues.
There are two types of members: Voting and Associate.
Voting members must be a corporation, partnership, or sole proprietorship that manufactures, or sells under its own label, materials, systems, or devices for fire containment or passive fire protection use. Firestop inspectors and consultants are also voting members.
Associate membership is open to anyone that does not qualify as a voting member.
Details and requirements are included in the IFC Bylaws.
