ASCE 7-10 Covers

Current Standard:

 

2016 Development Cycle

The standard development cycle is a six-year cycle that includes the following sub-cycles of the Main Committee:

  • Main Committee Meetings
  • Proposals to Main Committee due to ASCE from Subcommittee
  • Main Committee Ballot
  • Resolution of Main Committee comments; Reports due to ASCE

The 2016 standard development cycle will have four of these sub-cycles. The Main Committee will meet four times from mid-2013 to 2015 typically in May and November; the main committee will execute four Ballots (June 2013; Jan. 2014; June 2014; Jan. 2015). At the same time, the Subcommittees meet on separate schedules to prepare the proposals to the Main Committee.

The deadline to submit public proposals for this revisions cycle was December 31, 2012. Proposals submitted after this date are considered are considered at the committees discretion and may be deferred to the next revisions cycle. Download the Change Proposal Form.

The goal is to send the standard out for Public Comment in the Summer 2015, and to publish the standard in Spring 2016.
