Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local regulatory agency."
“We are very proud to have received this report and approval from the ICC” stated Burtin Polymer Laboratories President H.D. “Scooter” DeLaune. “To have a third party such as the ICC, which upholds rigorous standards for their testing and coding, provide us with the approval and results that they have, should go a long way with our customers, officials, and local agencies.”
