The American Concrete Institute (ACI) announced that the Ohio Building Code now references ACI 562-16 Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures.

For commercial buildings, the Ohio Building Code is based on the 2015 edition of the International Code Council's (ICC) International Building Code (IBC). The new changes add requirements for ACI 562-16 as follows: evaluation and design of structural concrete repairs and rehabilitation shall be in compliance with Chapter 34 of the IBC and ACI 562. Requiring the ACI 562 means that minimum performance requirements for public safety related to structural concrete are now being applied to existing buildings as well as new buildings.

Based on nearly a century of content, the ACI 562 code requirements combine ACI’s historical knowledge with state-of-the-art resources on the evaluation, repair, and rehabilitation of concrete buildings. ACI supports efforts to engage in state code development that help achieve its mission of developing, disseminating, and advancing the adoption of consensus-based knowledge on concrete and its uses.
