The American Institute of Steel Construction recently released an updated revision of one of its flagship standards, the Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges (ANSI/AISC 303-22).
The code was last updated in 2016. The latest version is available as a free download at aisc.org/2022code.
“The 2022 AISC Code of Standard Practice is the result of a tremendous effort by the committee over the last six years,” said Babette Freund, chair of the AISC Committee on the Code of Standard Practice, in a news release. “Of special note is the work of a joint task group that harmonized terminology and coordinated requirements between the 2022 AISC Code and the 2022 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, a major development in this latest edition.”
The 2022 AISC Code supersedes the 2016 version (ANSI/AISC 303-16), and its preface includes a list of changes and updates. It has been approved by the AISC Committee on the Code of Standard Practice and is ANSI-accredited.
The new Code will be included in the 16th Edition Steel Construction Manual, which AISC is preparing to publish next year.
