In order to accommodate a significant increase in participation, the International Code Council’s 2016 Online Governmental Consensus Vote (OGCV) for the Group B International Codes was extended an extra week and concluded on November 27. The demand resulted in more than 162,000 votes cast by eligible ICC voting members during the three-week period. There were a total of 577 code change proposals considered in the OGCV, with the maximum number of votes cast on a single proposal 780, and the minimum number of votes, 158. The 2016 OGCV resulted in significant increases in participation over the last two code development cycles when it debuted with ICC’s cloud-based system of code development, cdpACCESS.
