Abstract: 

The following report is an excerpt from the 2009 Building Science Corporation Industry Team Building America Annual Report. BSC has been active for many years in working to help identify and address code and standards issues that are a barrier to the proper use of technologies and products in the design and construction of high efficiency homes. Code and Standards manifest in many forms from improper code interpretation or employment, missing code language, or incorrect code language. Three specific building code issues were identified for action during the building code cycle application to the 2012 Model Building Codes and discussed in this report including their current “adoption status.”
