Responses for the June 2009
ICC-ES Evaluation Committee Meeting
(received at meeting)

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

  1. AC381—Subterranean Termite Baiting Systems. A new criteria is proposed for subterranean termite baiting systems, which are defined as integrated pest management systems for the protection of structures from subterranean termite infestation. Click here for responses.
  1. AC326—Proprietary Wood Preservative Systems – Common Requirements for Treatment Process. Revisions are proposed to (1) move requirements from other ICC-ES acceptance criteria into the appendices of AC326, including AC279 (with revisions), AC254 and AC62; (2) address requirements in the 2009 International Codes; and (3) make editorial revisions.

  2. AC405—Wood Structural Panels with Factory-applied Fire-retardant Coatings. A new acceptance criteria is proposed for wood structural panels with factory-applied fire-retardant coatings used to provide fire wall continuity. This item was considered by the Evaluation Committee in May 2008 and again in October 2008. Click here for responses.

  1. AC318—Structural Cementitious Floor and Roof Sheathing Panels. Revisions are proposed to include recognition of panels used as roof sheathing. This item was first proposed at the February 2009 Evaluation Committee hearing. Further, a revision is proposed to address requirements of the 2009 codes, and staff seeks input on several issues.

  1. AC377—Spray-applied Foam Plastic Insulation. Revisions are proposed for testing for use in attics and crawl spaces. Click here for responses.

  2. AC12—Foam Plastic Insulation. Revisions are proposed to add requirements that were first proposed on the October 2008 Alternate Criteria Process agenda; and for testing for use in attics and crawl spaces. Click here for responses.

  1. AC308—Post-installed Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements. Revisions are proposed to Annex A Sections 5.7.3.2, 8.18.3.1, 8.18.3.2, 8.18.3.4, 8.18.4.2, 11.12.3.1, and 1.2.2.3; Annex A Sections 9.6 and 11.15; and Annex A Section 11.3.8. Click here for responses.
  2. AC414—Mechanical Pinned Splices (MPSs) for Precast Prestressed Concrete Piles. A new criteria is proposed for mechanical pinned splices (MPSs) with MPS components embedded into precast prestressed concrete foundation piles during casting of concrete. Click here for responses.

  1. AC413—Steel Cable and Fitting Assemblies (SCFAs) for Seismic Sway Bracing of Nonstructural Components. A new criteria is proposed for steel cable and fitting assemblies (SCFAs) for seismic sway bracing of nonstructural components. This acceptance criteria applies to SCFAs that are the main component of tension-only cable seismic sway bracing assemblies (CSSBAs) used to resist only seismic forces and control seismic force–induced sway (displacements) of nonstructural components only.

  1. AC391—Continuous Rod Tie-Down Assemblies. A new criteria is proposed for continuous rod tie-down systems, which are used to resist tension loads due to wind or earthquake in light frame construction. This subject was previously presented at the October 2008 Evaluation Committee hearing. Click here for responses.

  2. AC316—Shrinkage Compensating Devices. Revisions are proposed to include reference to the 2009 International Building Code. The staff seeks input on a proposed revised method for determining looseness within the devices to what is currently stated, and whether the load-deflection information obtained during testing can be utilized in providing design information within the evaluation report.
