Section 2.0 - Loads

ID #1137

Section 3108.1 of the 2012 IBC eliminates the 222-G exceptions related to seismic design and it changes the horizontal extent of escarpments. Did the 222-G committee submit comments on those two proposed provisions during the development of 2012? If so, what were the comments? If not, does the committee agree with those provisions?

Yes, the committee did collaborate with the escarpment provisions. Corresponding changes to the escarpment provisions are planned to be addressed in the next Addendum. The committee did not collaborate with the IBC seismic exceptions. The committee believes the exceptions listed in Section 2.7.3 of TIA-222-G remain valid.
