ASCE Announces Public Comment Period
October 19, 2007

The American Society of Civil Engineers’ Structural Engineering
Institute (ASCE/SEI) has announced it will conduct a public comment
period on the second supplement to its Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures standard (ASCE 7-05). The public comment period will be held from October 20, 2007 through December 4, 2007.

The purpose of the standard is to provide minimum load requirements for the design of buildings and other structures that are subject to building code requirements. This supplement addresses changes to seismic design requirements for building and non-building structures.

To participate in the public comment period, contact Phillip Mariscal, ASCE standards administrator, at or (703) 295-6338. For more information on the standard, or ASCE’s standards program, please contact Karen Albers at or (703) 295-6404.
