  1. AC438 — Proposed Acceptance Criteria for Flexible Steep-slope Asphalt Composite Roofing Shingles. A new criteria proposed to set forth requirements for asphalt composite shingles that do not meet all of the prescriptive requirements of ASTM D 3462. Click here.

  2. AC365 — Propose Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Building-integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) Roof Modules and Panels. Revisions are proposed to update the criteria to 2012 codes, to incorporate the BIPV shingles/module requirements of the 2012 codes, and to apply the 2012 code requirements for BIPV roof shingles/modules to all BIPV roof products currently covered by the criteria.

  3. 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.

  4. 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. Click here.
  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. AC427 Proposed Acceptance Criteria for Cast Connex® High Strength Connectors™ for Use as Bracing Connections. A new criteria is proposed to set forth general design requirements and procedures for casting and quality control of Cast Connex® High Strength Connectors™ used in special and ordinary concentrically braced frames. A prior edition of this criteria was posted on the ICC-ES website for public comment using the February 2011 alternative criteria process. Click here.
  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.

  1. 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).
