On September 14, 2021, the North Carolina Building Code Council (BCC) voted to accept ACI’s proposal to amend the 2018 North Carolina Existing Building Code to reference ACI CODE-562 Code Requirements for the Assessment, Repair and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures, it was subsequently approved for adoption by the North Carolina Rules Review Commission on November 18, 2021. Effective January 1, 2022, North Carolina will become the fourth state to reference ACI CODE-562, joining Hawaii, Ohio, and Florida.
A leading authority and resource worldwide for individuals and organizations involved in concrete design, construction, and materials, ACI has long focused its efforts on knowledge development and dissemination. Through its mission, the Institute dedicates resources and efforts to advance the adoption of its consensus-based knowledge.
The North Carolina BCC and all individuals involved in the code development process are recognized for addressing the need to help ensure quality repairs of structural concrete and thus better provide for the safety, health, and general welfare of the citizens of North Carolina.
“The adoption of ACI CODE-562 in the North Carolina Building Code could not have been executed without the perseverance and engagement from ACI members,” stated Steve Szoke, Code Advocacy Engineer, American Concrete Institute. “This included the creation of a well-rounded North Carolina collaboration group, multiple hearings with testimonies from Carolinians, and multiple education presentations on the use and benefits of ACI CODE-562.”
The code change establishes minimum requirements for the design, construction, repair, and rehabilitation of concrete structural elements in buildings for various levels of desired performance as deemed appropriate for the project. In addition to improved life safety, the requirements clearly define objectives and anticipated performance for the code official, owners, designers, contractors, and installers.
ACI’s focus on the development of new code requirements and global adoption and use of ACI knowledge will assist concrete industry professionals in managing increasing requirements for the design of concrete structures.
