The International Building Quality Centre (IBQC) had its third virtual board meeting for the year on 24 July 2020 at 8pm AEST. It was a great meeting and the Board was able to report upon the progress of some of the initiatives that are on foot.

The first key initiative that is close to completion is the generation of a ‘power-packed’ five page set of maxims that are considered to be paramount ingredients of international building regulatory good practice. The Board discussed and finalised a couple of concepts that required consensual resolution on the part of all Board members. The instrument will be published within the month through a variety of poignant online mediums.

The Board also resolved that in the 2nd half of September, the IBQC will hold its first international online forum whereupon a number of board members will address various elements of the good practice maxims. Dominic Sims, Chief Executive of the International Codes Council of the United States of America very kindly volunteered that the ICC will host this inaugural online forum. Once the date and the program is finalised, it will be published and available for perusal.
