The International Code Council, the world’s largest developer of model building codes and standards, and the Pakistan Engineering Council, a regulatory body of engineering profession and engineering education, have announced the development of the Building Code of Pakistan, according to the ICC. Based on the 2021 International Building Code, The Building Code of Pakistan will provide minimum benchmarks for the structural safety of building design, construction, operation, practices and installation of allied building systems in Pakistan.

The ICC and PEC’s Think Tank Department share a history of holding international development agreements, working toward the overall development of the Building Code of Pakistan. The ICC and PEC officially signed the international publishing agreement in August.

“We are pleased to continue our long-standing global partnership with the Pakistan Engineering Council,” said Mark Johnson, executive vice president and director of business development for the ICC. “The BCP 2021 contains significant advancements in building safety and is a landmark achievement that reflects Pakistan’s commitment in furthering the advancement of building safety in the country.”
