SEI members are committed to developing high-quality, cutting-edge standards including structural loading, blast design, seismic retrofit, and many others. We are always eager to welcome new members to roll up their sleeves and get to work. If you have a passion for code and standards development, come join us!

ASCE/SEI Standards

SEI supports our members in the development of 25 ASCE/SEI Standards, including coordination of all activities of ASCE related to the establishment, use, or discontinuance of standards in the area of buildings, non-building structures, and non-structural components. All meetings and conference calls are open to guests. Please contact Jennifer Goupil for information.

Public Comment Periods

ASCE 7-22

ASCE will conduct a public comment period on the new standard ASCE/SEI 74-XX Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) for Pultruded Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Structures. The public comment period will begin on August 20, 2021, and remain open through October 04, 2021.

This standard is intended for use in the design of new buildings and other structures constructed of pultruded fiber–reinforced polymer (FRP) composite structural shapes, connections, and prefabricated building products. This standard does not cover tendons and cables. The standard applies pultruded fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) structural shapes that have symmetric and balanced glass reinforcement and fiber architecture combined with a polymeric matrix.

Access the ASCE Public Comment System. Accessing the ASCE Public Comment System will require using or creating an ASCE user account if you do not have one. For additional questions, please contact ASCE’s Codes and Standards Senior Administrator James Neckel at (703) 295-6176.

Supplements, Errata & Interpretations

Supplements, Errata & Interpretations to ASCE/SEI Standards can be downloaded in PDF format from the ASCE Library. Supplements are an extension of the Standard provisions and are balloted and approved by the committee. Errata correct discrepancies between the balloted and published version of a Standard, as well as typographical errors. Interpretations are formal committee responses to a direct question and are balloted and approved by the committee. The ASCE/SEI Standards listed below have published supplements, errata, or interpretations.
