A specification is a standard that establishes uniform criteria for a building product, assembly, technology, or project. Reference specifications can be important resources for code officials and specifiers creating contract documents. Citing an ACI reference specification in project specifications improves the quality of contract documents by providing an industry consensus standard that establishes uniform criteria for concrete construction.
