Anyone involved in the selection or specification of equipment for commercial buildings is going to have to be familiar with the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC 2009), which is a document coordinated between government and industry. It sets energy efficiency requirements for new construction and certain types of renovations in the United States that have been adopted by some states. There are IECC compliance symbols used that everyone on your team should be familiar with.
You must comply with the IECC in commercial buildings and in new construction and alterations of existing buildings. The IECC program is responsible for the development and implementation of energy standards for buildings in the United States that ensures that buildings are constructed in ways that conserve resources and protect the environment.
Energy savings and energy efficiency have become focal points in commercial buildings. The prospect of accumulating LEEDS points has also become a major factor in building design within the architectural community. Because of these factors, IECC compliance is becoming more important in commercial building specifications and will continue to grow in the near future for employees and the public.
In 2000, the International Code Council [ICC] adopted the IECC to replace the National Building Code [NBC], the BOCA National Building Code [BOCA], and portions of the Uniform Mechanical Code [UMC] and Uniform Plumbing Code [UPC]. The IECC is a model code that consists of minimum standards for building safety and energy efficiency in single and multifamily dwellings and small commercial buildings.
The code is based on national consensus standards and provisions published by the American National Standards Institute [ANSI], American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers [ASHRAE], Illuminating Engineering Society of North America [IESNA], International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials [IAP]

Often H and S are merged together and regulated by the same agency, whereas, the E is regulated by a specific environmental agency.
