The ICC-ESR provides third-party verification that individual products meet the rigorous requirements of the International Codes.  The ICC-ESR Evaluation Report is confirmed evidence of a product’s code compliance, as well as a summary of relevant installation requirements and testing references. ICC-ES is an independent subsidiary of the ICC, which was developed in 2003 when four national building product evaluation services combined forces to provide consistent, professional evaluation of building components, products, methods, and materials.
