Survey of U.S. code officials shows trends in code compliance during COVID-19 

From March 22 through April 1, 2020, the International Code Council (ICC) surveyed building and fire departments in all 50 states to learn how code officials are coping with the professional challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The results of the survey, which ICC released on April 6th, show how jurisdictions throughout the U.S. are keeping up with inspections, new building permits and new construction.

Among the main survey findings:

  • The majority of departments surveyed (93 percent) are still performing inspections, either remotely or in-person.
  • 65 percent of respondents said that some or all employees that conduct plan review or inspections are working remotely.

Respondents came from jurisdictions of all sizes ranging from 1,000 people to over 4.6 million.
