In 2022, the South Carolina Building Code Council (BCC) supported the recommendations of the structural specialty committee and voted to accept ACI’s proposal to amend the 2021 South Carolina Building Code by referencing ACI CODE-562-21: Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures - Code and Commentary. It was subsequently approved by the South Carolina Rules Review Commission. Effective January 1, 2023, South Carolina became the fifth state to reference ACI CODE-562, joining North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, and Hawaii.
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 South 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 South Carolina.
“The adoption of ACI CODE-562 in the South 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.
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.
Below is the link to the full 2021 SC Building Code and the modification which specifically references ACI CODE-562.
Modifications to the 2021 SC Building Code
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.
