APPA International is an ANSI Accredited Standards Developer
Engaging the education sector in standards and codes activities requires a consensus-based process that is impartial and brings together a diverse range of stakeholders and subject matter experts. The APPA Standards and Codes Council establishes Work Groups to develop APPA standards and to make recommendations and propose changes to codes and standards established and maintained by other standards development organizations.
The ASCC works on behalf of APPA’s members to ensure the needs of educational institutions are heard by the International Code Council (ICC), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and other standards developers on an as needed basis. When developing APPA standards, the ASCC Work Groups utilize established procedures to maintain and manage their Work Group activities. As an Accredited Standards Developer, APPA uses Accredited Procedures for the Development of American National Standards, approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), when engaged in ANSI standards development activities.
