  1. AC37 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Vinyl Siding. Revisions are proposed to update referenced standards for wind resistance testing and the allowable pressure definition, modify the structure the criteria to include sections dedicated for unbacked vinyl siding and foam-plastic-backed vinyl siding, update the criteria to address installation of vinyl siding installed over foam plastic sheathing, and delete the current requirement that tested installation methods be superior to code-prescribed methods. Portions of this proposal were introduced under the June 2013 alternative agenda process agenda. Click here.
