This is the BEST Opportunity we have to
CHANGE the next Code (2020).
YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND the following HVAC INDUSTRY MEETING
March 21st, where the Mechanical TAC meets at 8 AM, for the morning and the Energy TAC in the afternoon around 1 PM. The Meeting will be at Embassy Suites Orlando North (Altamonte Springs).
The TACs go over all of the Code Modifications (Mechanical and Energy Codes) and vote to recommend approval or not.
FRACCA is represented by Oscar Calleja currently on both of the TAC’s. Bob Cochell is on the Energy TAC and Robert Griffin is on the Mechanical. This is the best opportunity we have to change the next Code (2020).
FRACCA needs your help. We are at a perilous juncture in time concerning the future of the Florida Building Code. Legislative changes in 2018 established the Florida Building Code 6th Ed. as the base code for future editions, rather than continuing to utilize the International Codes. It could have devastating results for our communities.
FRACCA and several industry partners have submitted over 1,000 code modifications to the Florida Building Commission. The next step in the process is that these modifications must be approved by the Florida Building Commission’s Technical Advisory Committees (TAC). Many are simple clarifications of language and corrections of errors or omissions. Others are important changes and corrections.You may take a look and help by speaking in support of some of the Modifications we have submitted, like: #8360, 8362, 8364, 8367, 8371, 8377
Your presence at these meetings is of utmost importance to maintaining a strong code that will continue to protect the lives and property of Floridians and the millions of guests that visit our beautiful state each year.
Expectations of the Members attending the meeting:
It is open to the Public and they allow anyone to sign up to speak. The idea is that when each individual item comes up they ask for “Public Comment”. At that time, make your way go up to podium and say their name and company and then say that they support the Mod, or the motion that was made to approve it. That is it. Support our Leadership Team when a Mod or Motion is presented by them.
