Technical Advisory Groups

Construction Codes Coordinating Board Logo

A Technical Advisory Group (TAG) is a subcommittee of the Construction Codes Coordinating Board (CCCB) that assists the CCCB in evaluating changes, additions or deletions to the ICC Codes and the National Electrical Code adopted by the District of Columbia. Each TAG is dedicated to a particular area of expertise that corresponds to a model code (or codes) review and is chaired by a CCCB member.  A TAG may initiate code change proposals or review code change proposals forwarded by the CCCB Chair for its review and recommendation. While members of the public are invited to participate in TAG meetings, only TAG members appointed by the CCCB are entitled to vote on any proposals or recommendations to the CCCB.  The Technical Advisory Groups provide relevant expertise on other issues as specified by the Construction Codes Coordinating Board, and undertake research or review on any technical issues that are identified by the TAG in the course of its activities and which the TAG Chair believes warrants further study or consideration.

If you would like to apply to become a member of a TAG, please complete the application (located below in related documents) and attach your resume or a biographical sketch. Please scan and send an email to the CCCB with the application and attachments. You can also fax to (202) 442-9445 or drop off the application in person at 1100 4th Street, SW, 5th Floor, Washington, DC 20024.
