----------------------------------------------------------------------------
   
Overview:
On January 1, 1999, the ICBO Board of Directors approved the expansion of
the Conference's code opinion service in order to better assist the growing
needs of its constituents. This service was further expanded to provide an
expedited service for written requests, which was implemented on July 20,
1999. ICBO now offers three unique options. What follows is a brief
description of each of these three service options and their respective
benefits.

I. New Code Opinions on CD-ROM
ICBO is proud to announce the release of a new CD-ROM product entitled The
Code Consultant. The Code Consultant places over 2,000 code opinion letters
dating from 1988 to present at your fingertips and includes search
capabilities which allow the user instant access to specific code sections
or topics. Code opinions are taken directly from ICBO's archive of letters,
and address almost every subject covered by the Uniform Codes (excluding the
UFC). The Code Consultant provides a comprehensive analysis of the intent of
the code sections based on hundreds of years of cumulative code experience
by a professionally trained staff of code professionals. This new CD-ROM
product provides you, the user, with your own panel of code experts. The
Code Consultant is listed at the special introductory price of $189.00 for
ICBO Members and $245.00 for Nonmembers. This product will be updated on an
annual basis. Advance orders can be placed by calling 1-800-423-6587, ext.
3214.

II. Phone Code Opinion Service with CD-ROM (Subscription Based)
ICBO now offers a new Code Opinion Service which provides subscribers access
to phone interpretations as well as a complimentary copy of the new The Code
ConsultantCD-ROM. For an annual subscription fee , members (except
jurisdictional and governmental members) and nonmembers of ICBO, seeking
information regarding the Uniform and International Codes, including
project-specific information, will have access to ICBO's trained staff of
engineers and architects. This new program is an excellent resource for
engineers, architects and designers who need answers to those tough code
questions.

As in the past, ICBO will continue its time honored tradition of providing
its jurisdictional and governmental members with unlimited access to its
code opinion service at no added cost. A written code opinion policy is also
available on an hourly rate and is described below. To subscribe to the new
Phone Code Opinion service, please contact customer service at
1-800-423-6587, ext. 3214.

III. Written Code Opinion Service (Per Opinion)
Two options are now available to get code opinions on a case by case basis.

An hourly fee based Code Opinion Service is available as an alternative to
the subscription based service. This program allows the design professional
and other nonjurisdictional representatives access to a combination of
written or phone code opinions at an hourly rate of $125.00. 

Expedited service is now also offered, with turnaround times of 1, 2 or 5
days. These expedited written interpretations are for the Uniform Codes (not
UFC) and informal letters on the International Codes. 

These services are designed to facilitate the needs of those with infrequent
code questions. As in the past, ICBO will continue its time honored
tradition of providing its jurisdictional and governmental members with
unlimited access to its code opinion service at no added cost. To subscribe
to the new Phone Code Opinion service, please contact customer service at
1-800-423-6587, ext. 3214.
