About Codes and Standards

ASCE Standards provide technical guidelines or mandatory provisions for promoting safety, reliability, productivity and efficiency across all areas of civil engineering. These voluntary standards are written by experts with knowledge and expertise in the particular field. There are nearly 60 published ASCE Standards. How to join an ASCE Standards Committee.

Standards are developed by a consensus process managed by the Codes and Standards Committee (CSC). The consensus process includes balloting by the balanced standards committee, made up of Society members and nonmembers, and a public review period.
