According to the institute, ACI CODE-562-21 was written specifically to be integrated into building codes as a mechanism for building officials to have increased confidence that repairs are performed in a manner that provides an acceptable level of protection for the public.
Previous versions of ACI CODE-562 have already been adopted by North Carolina, Hawaii, Ohio and Florida.
Michael L. Tholen, ACI managing director, engineering and professional development, says: “This fourth edition of ACI CODE-562 now provides users with clearer direction when approaching a repair project using the document in conjunction with the IEBC or as a stand-alone code. ACI CODE-562-21 provides all parties involved in a concrete repair project with a common and clearly defined set of requirements upon which to base its assessment, repair, and rehabilitation.”
ACI CODE-562 is available to subscribers of both the online ACI Collection of Concrete Codes, Specifications, and Practices and the ACI Concrete Repair Subscription, or can be purchased individually in print or digital formats.
