Reminder: NGBS Committee Applications and Proposed Changes Due April 5

Sustainability and Green Building

Home Innovation Research Labs has issued a call for members of the Consensus Committee to develop updates to the ICC-700 National Green Building Standard (NGBS). The committee for the 2024 updated version, comparable to prior years, will include government officials, advocacy groups, home builders, product manufacturers and other affected industry stakeholders in residential and mixed-use construction.

The committee members and other interested parties will be assigned to task groups, each specializing in a different area of the NGBS. Submit an application online  to serve on the Consensus Committee or a Task Group by April 5.

The entire Consensus Committee will hold two meeting in Washington, D.C., in 2022.

  • June 2022: Committee members will initiate the review of all proposed changes to the NGBS, which will include input from members of the relevant Task Groups.
  • Fall 2022: Consensus Committee members will consider, discuss and take formal action on all proposed changes. Individuals and groups can submit proposed changes to the NGBS online by April 5.

Once the committee has completed its work, the newly updated NGBS will be submitted to ANSI for approval.

To date, nearly 350,000 homes have been NGBS Green Certified to the NGBS, and tens of thousands are currently in the certification pipeline.
