The Code Advisory Committee (CAC) advances NCSEA’s commitment to technical excellence by exerting a positive influence on the development and application of relevant codes and standards on behalf of practicing structural engineers. 

The Committee, which operates using subcommittees that are structured to reflect the process and responsibilities of the organizations that develop the model building code and other applicable structural standards, realizes this purpose through the following initiatives:   

  • Supporting participation by NCSEA committees and Structural Engineers Associations in the development of codes and standards 
  • Identifying and empowering individuals to represent the interests of NCSEA, Structural Engineers Associations, and practicing structural engineers within code and standard development bodies 
  • Educating structural engineers about the proper application of codes and standards and informing them of any changes 
  • Monitoring and participating in the model Building Code and structural standards development process
