ACI announces six statements to support policy positions

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has released six statements to support policy positions as well as state, federal and international programmes and regulations.

ACI says the position statements focus on advocacy efforts related to code development and adoption. Future statements may focus on other ACI programmes, services and activities.

Current position statements include:

  • Current Code and Standard Adoption – Encourage the adoption and/or use of current building codes and standards.
  • Adoption of ACI Documents Without Modifications – Encourage the adoption and use of ACI products, including but not limited to codes and standards without modification.
  • Acceptance of ACI Certification Programmes – Support acceptance of sampling, testing, inspection, and installation of concrete and related products and materials; and encourage the use of certification programmes developed and administered by professional societies in lieu of programmes developed and administered by other entities; and support mandates or otherwise place preference on accreditation of individuals and entities engaged in providing services related to concrete and concrete products.
  • Concrete Knowledge – Support research, technological advancements, and dissemination of concrete technology; and channel through, directed to, or otherwise engage ACI and/or the ACI Foundation.
  • Enhanced Resilience – Encourage or establish criteria related to enhancing the resiliency of the built environment; and where appropriate, engage ACI and/or the ACI Foundation to facilitate programmes and activities related to the role of concrete technology in achieving enhanced resiliency.
  • Sustainability – Encourage or establish criteria related to enhancing the sustainability of the built environment; and where appropriate, engage ACI and/or the ACI Foundation to facilitate programmes and activities related to the role of concrete technology in achieving enhanced sustainability.

Kerry Sutton, ACI advocacy engineer, says: “The Institute has used and will continue to use these statements to align ACI efforts with other industry organisations to more effectively influence programmes, policies, rules, and regulations related to concrete and concrete technology.”
