  1. AC326 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Proprietary Wood Preservative Systems – Common Requirements for Treatment Process, Test Methods and Performance. Revisions are proposed to update the criteria to include the 2012 codes; list the appendices of the criteria in Section 1.2 of the criteria; and add provisions concerning identification on nonconforming materials that are to be segregated in accordance with AC10. Additionally, the cover letter to this criteria outlines recommendations of an industry task force concerning removing certain criteria from the ICC-ES website (effectively asking ICC-ES to withdraw these criteria due to those products now being addressed in the appendices of AC326). Further, the ICC-ES staff is seeking additional input on the disclaimer proposed by AWPA that was discussed at the October 2011 meeting (a report from an industry task force may be available prior to the committee meeting).
