Stakeholders from the roofing and lightning protection industries have been working to build code consensus for LPS and roofing applications to improve trade coordination on commercial jobsites. The 2024 edition of the International Building Code (IBC), is set to include new language to help clarify how Lightning Protection Systems (LPS) are secured to commercial roof assemblies, roof coverings, metal edge systems, and gutters.

The 2024 edition is set to be published in late 2023 and will likely to be adopted by states and jurisdictions across the U.S., and around the world.
