Organizational Overview

The American Concrete Institute is a leading global authority for the development, dissemination, and adoption of its consensus-based standards, technical resources, and educational, training, & certification programs. Founded in 1904, ACI is headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA, with a regional office in Dubai, UAE, and resource centers in Southern California, Chicago/Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic. ACI has over 94 chapters, 244 student chapters, and 35,000 members spanning over 120 countries.

Scope of Standards Developing Activity

Standardization is the most rigorous consensus process used by ACI. ACI standards are written in mandatory language. There are typically two types of ACI Standards – design codes and construction specifications.

Design codes are directed to the design professional, not the construction team. ACI design codes include, code requirements, code cases, acceptance criteria, and design specifications.

ACI construction specifications are written to direct the producers, testing agencies, and construction team, not the design professional. ACI specifications include both construction and material specifications.
