As we explain in our ABOUT, we continue grooming a cadre of “code writers and vote-getters” begun at the University of Michigan in 1993. Code-writers and vote-getters for the user-interest in the American standards system are far and few between because technical expertise is expensive. The cost of an informed and effective voice can only be met by the technical oligarchies we also identify in our ABOUT — i.e. conformance, manufacturers, insurance interests, trade associations — but those voices are out there. Many front-line experts are also enraged by the waste, duplication and non-sense that has characterized the US public education system since 1965.
We are now drilling down into state and local adaptations of nationally developed codes and standards that are incorporated by reference into public safety and sustainability legislation.
Standards Michigan remains the “free” home site but state-specific sites such as Standards West Virginia will be accessible to user-interest code-writers and vote-getters. Please send email@example.com a request to join one of our mailing lists appropriate to your interest. #StandardsWestVirginia
