NFPA 5000(tm), Building Construction and Safety Code(tm) -- the first building code to be developed through a process accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) -- meets the criteria of the ISO for its Building Code Effectiveness Grading Schedule (BCEGS), making jurisdictions that adopt NFPA 5000 eligible for the maximum points available.

ISO evaluates building code adoption and enforcement efforts within jurisdictions and provides classifications to insurers to assist them in their underwriting and rating of individual properties.
