2022 Updates to the AISC Code of Standard Practice

The 2022 AISC Code of Standard Practice included substantial changes to ensure that more complete design documents are produced. In addition, all terminology was harmonized with all AISC Standards. New terminology was introduced, such as Contract Documents, Construction Documents, and Alternate Delivery Methods. In addition, there are new requirements to meet the International Building Code and requirements for the approval of documents.

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding the differences between Construction Documents and Contract Documents.
  • Learning the new requirements for complete construction documents. 
  • Learn how the changes in the AISC Code of Standard Practice and IBC relate to each other.


AISC is sweetening the pot by raffling a 16th Ed. Steel Construction Manual at this Dinner Meeting. We hope you can make it! 

1 CE credit will be issued for this event. CE certificates will be emailed to all attendees within a week after the event.
