Public comment period for Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures

Comment period open through January 14, 2013

By

The Masonry Standards Joint Committee (MSJC) has proposed revisions to the 2011 Edition of its Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (TMS 402-11/ACI 530-11/ASCE-5-11), Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 602-11/ACI 530.1-11/ASCE6-11) and their companion commentaries for a planned 2013 edition of the Standards.

The MSJC is sponsored by the The Masonry Society (TMS), American Concrete Institute (ACI), and the Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (SEI/ASCE). In accordance with the rules of The Masonry Society, and consistent with the rules of the other sponsoring organizations, proposed changes to standardized documents must be open for public comment for a period of not less than 45 days.

A summary of major proposed changes to these documents can be reviewed by clicking here. A complete Working Draft of the MSJC Code, Specification and Commentaries, including proposed revisions can be viewed by clicking here (note this file is almost 6 Megs and may take some time to download).

Comment can be made online at www.masonrysociety.org.
