  1. AC424 — Proposed Acceptance Criteria for Wood-Based Exterior Composite Trim Treated with Zinc Borate (ZB) Preservative by a Non-Pressure Process. A new criteria is proposed for exterior wood-based exterior composite trim treated with ZB preservative by a non-pressure process. Click here.
  2. AC365 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Building-integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) Roof Panels. Revisions are proposed to include requirements for BIPV roof modules components to either single-ply membranes or metal roof panel roof covering systems. This subject was previously considered by the Evaluation Committee in October 2009. Click here.
  3. AC66 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Fire-retardant-treated Wood. Revisions are proposed to address the 2009 International Codes, to add definitions for fire-retardant-treated wood (pressure process and other means during manufacture) and to reference AC257 for the evaluation of proprietary corrosion-resistant fasteners. Click here.
  4. AC423 — Proposed Acceptance Criteria for a Low Profile, Raised Deck System Installed Over a Roof Assembly or Exterior Structural Floor Substrate. A new criteria is proposed raised-deck systems used over a roof assembly or over an exterior structural floor substrate to provide a level walking surface. Click here.
  5. AC203 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Zinc Borate (ZB) Preservative Treatment of Structural Composite Lumber by Non-Pressure Processes. Revisions are proposed to address the 2009 International Codes and to expand the scope of the criteria to include any structural composite wood product, not just lumber. Click here.
  6. AC421 — Proposed Acceptance Criteria for Vertically-acting Egress Fire-door Assemblies. A new criteria is proposed to evaluate vertically-acting egress fire-door assemblies. Click here.
  7. AC39 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Walking Decks. Revisions are proposed to address the 2009 International Codes, address the issue of some of the standards referenced in the AC being discontinued, to provide requirements for walking decks that are not used as roof coverings and to provide requirements for walking decks used with nonclassified roof coverings. Click here.
  8. AC417 — Proposed Acceptance Criteria for 1/2-inch Sag-resistant Gypsum Ceiling Board Installed with Two-part Polyurethane Adhesive. A new criteria is proposed to evaluate ½-inch-thick gypsum ceiling board installed parallel to framing spaced at 24 inches on center. This criteria was previously considered by the Evaluation Committee in October 2009. Click here.
  9. AC391 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Continuous Rod Tie-Down Assemblies. Revisions proposed are a complete re-write of the acceptance criteria to limit the use of continuous rod tie-down assemblies to applications in which they resist wind uplift forces only (eliminating their use in resisting wind and seismic shear wall overturning forces), to add provisions for evaluating a continuous rod tie-down system and to include provisions that would limit deflections allowed in the top plate.

  3. AC43 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Steel Deck Roof and Floor Systems. Revisions are proposed to update the criteria to the 2009 International Codes, to remove the Uniform Building Code (UBC) from the criteria, to update and remove certain referenced standards and specifications, to change provisions relating to fasteners, to remove provisions that allow use of the Tri Services Manual and to change provisions regarding web crippling tests. Click here.
  4. AC118 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Tapping Screw Fasteners. Revisions are proposed to update the criteria to the 2009 International Codes, to remove the Uniform Building Code (UBC) from the criteria, to make changes needed to correlate with AC43 and to incorporate a new table that clarifies the types of testing needed for certain fastener/use combinations. Click here.
  5. AC70 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Fasteners Power-driven into Concrete, Steel and Masonry Elements. Revisions are proposed to update the criteria to the 2009 International Codes, to remove legacy codes from the criteria, to identify the types of end uses addressed by the criteria, to require testing laboratories to identify the grade and density of concrete brick and block used in testing, to delete certain provisions related to prescriptive provisions of the codes, to add requirements to address components intended for use as ceiling wire hangers and to revise certain provisions related to edge distance and required strength of concrete use in test specimens. Click here.
  6. AC259 — Proposed Revisions to Acceptance Criteria on Pneumatic- or Gas-Power-Driven Pin Fasteners Used to Attach Gypsum Panels to Cold-Formed Steel Framing.
