  1. AC358 Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Helical Foundation Systems and Devices. Revisions are proposed to update the criteria to the 2012 and 2009 codes, revise the title, and to incorporate revisions proposed by the Helical Pile Adhoc Committee. Click here.

  2. AC179 Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Metallic HVAC Duct Enclosure Assemblies. Revisions are proposed to update the criteria to the 2009 and 2012 codes and to adopt a new ASTM test standard, ASTM E 2816, which was developed specifically for applications noted in this criteria.

  1. AC326 Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Proprietary Wood Preservative Systems – Common Requirements for Treatment Process, Test Methods and Performance. A revision is proposed such that the disclaimer required by the criteria, when AWPA use categories are referenced on the labels, must be printed conspicuously on the same side of the label as the use category. Additionally, revisions are proposed to the appendices of the criteria to update referenced standards to comply with the current AWPA Book of Standards. Click here.

  1. AC58 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Adhesive Anchors in Masonry Elements. Revisions are proposed to address the requirement for testing by the Independent Testing and Evaluation Agency (ITEA). This issue was held for further study at the June 2011 meeting. Click here.

  2. AC232 Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Anchor Channels in Concrete Elements. A number of editorial revisions are proposed to improve the criteria along with other technical changes and changes to the provisions involving Independent Testing and Evaluation Agencies (ITEAs).

  1. AC437 Proposed Acceptance Criteria for Expansion Bolts in Structural Steel Connections (Blind Bolts). A new criteria is proposed for evaluating connections in structural steel using expansion anchor steel fasteners (blind bolts). Click here.
  1. 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 2012 codes; include a seismic qualification tests for fasteners placed in structural steel to remove limitations in ASCE 7-10 and permit increased loading; to partially reinstate Table 2 from earlier editions of the criteria to address sill plate attachments, to stipulate a minimum default embedment for fasteners placed into concrete; to add specifications for ceiling wires used with ceiling clip fasteners; and to require that multiple fasteners be used for any connection.

  1. AC436 Proposed Acceptance Criteria for Seismic Performance of Light Frame Lateral Force Resisting Assemblies. A new criteria is proposed to replace portions of existing ICC-ES acceptance criteria relating to seismic equivalence of prefabricated lateral force resisting vertical assemblies (LFRVAs) or LFRVAs of alternative light-frame construction that consist of unique configurations, or components, to load bearing shear walls of light-frame construction.

  2. AC316 Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Shrinkage Compensating Devices. Based on testimony heard at the June 2011 Evaluation Committee hearings, input is sought concerning whether revisions to this criteria are needed to address the potential for failure modes of other than those currently envisioned by this criteria in tension-controlled shrinkage compensating devices (TCSCD).
