International Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO, has been appointed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Executive Committee as a member of the institute’s National Policy Committee. The committee is responsible for broad-based policy and position decisions regarding national standards development process issues, government relations and public policy issues.
“It is an honor to serve as a member of this committee and represent the interests of building safety professionals in creating standards development policy,” Sims said. “ICC develops several American National Standards in accordance with ANSI's Essential Requirements and has a great deal of respect for the work of the Policy Committee. More than 1,500 standards are referenced in our International Codes that act as a critical means for those standards to have a real impact on commerce.”
Sims has held numerous positions in the building safety community since 1983, both elected and appointed at the federal, state and local level. Prior to his work with the Code Council, Sims served as the CEO of the Southern Building Code Congress International and guided its consolidation with two other regional code organizations that formed the ICC in 2003. He has served on several Boards of Directors and was Executive Director of the Palm Beach County, Fla., Planning, Zoning and Building Department. He has degrees from Palm Beach Atlantic University.
“ANSI is very pleased to now be able to count Mr. Sims among our voting members of the National Policy Committee,” said Scott Cooper, ANSI vice president of government relations.
