The Building Codes Council exists for the purpose of assisting the department with the application, implementation, and interpretation of the state building code and building codes adopted by counties, cities, or towns.
The council works cooperatively with the department and with representatives of the construction industry and the interested public, to harmonize building codes and related rules with both the needs of the construction industry and the public interest in efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and safety.
Council members are appointed by the Governor with Senate confirmation. The council's 12 members serve 3 year terms.
For additional contact information and information on council member terms, please visit the Office of the Governor's link for Board Members and Councils at http://boards.mt.gov/.
