Through the advocacy work of our International Codes and Standards (IC&S) team, FM Global has established itself as a major contributor in efforts to improve fire codes and regulations in key commercial and industrial markets. In recent years, the IC&S team had a prominent outreach and research support role in the approval of the National Building Code of India, the update of codes in China and the development of a National Model Fire Code in Brazil, among other advancements in global markets.
The IC&S team is a group of experienced professionals based in both developed and emerging markets throughout the world. It is dedicated to a singular purpose to strengthen building codes and standards for the benefit of our clients.
The team engages with government authorities, research institutions and advocacy groups to promote, codify and implement safer standards that will make our clients more resilient by preventing costly property losses—particularly from fire. These collaborative efforts have led to significant strides in Asia, Latin America and Europe.
