The Decoder

Improving Compliance with the Energy Code

The Decoder is a quarterly newsletter produced by IMT and BCAP that delivers targeted, technical information on energy code enforcement and compliance to building officials, plans examiners, and inspectors. Our goal is to improve energy code compliance through a well-informed enforcement community. Topic areas include explanations and technical opinions on energy code provisions, sharing of best practices, new and helpful resources, and current issues related to enforcement and compliance. Each edition will also include highlights from the Energy Code Ambassador’s Program (ECAP) created by BCAP and the International Code Council (ICC).
