WSRB Subscriber Services – BCEGS

May 29, 2013

BCEGSBCEGS (Building Code Effectiveness Grading Schedule) offer a valuable glimpse of a community’s protection capability. BCEGS rates are based on the building codes that a community has adopted and the enforcement of those codes. They particularly emphasize codes associated with natural disaster preparedness.

At WSRB, we evaluate communities across Washington State to develop accurate and consistent gradings based principally on the community’s administration of codes, plan review, and field inspections.

This gives insurers a good idea of which communities are going above and beyond and which ones could use some improvement. As a result, many insurers will lower rates in communities with better BCEGS.

BCEGS for all participating communities are available to WSRB subscribers at no cost. To learn more about what BCEGS are and how we evaluate communities, check out our BCEGS Overviews, Part I and Part II.

If you have any questions regarding BCEGS, feel free to contact Bob Ferrell anytime at 509-228-8062.
