Concrete Industry Position Statements

The ASCC Technical Committee regularly produces position statements that cover topics of major interest regarding building with concrete.

Many of the positions ASCC has taken relate to actual job site issues. ASCC’s Position Statements have received widespread distribution amongst those in the concrete industry via trade magazines, events and more.

The information contained in these position statements is neither exhaustive nor exclusive to all circumstances that may occur when building with concrete. The relevance and implementation can be affected by variables such as human resources guidelines, state and federal statutes, rule or regulations as well as environmental conditions. 

The ASCC strongly recommends the concrete industry consider these recommendations including the applicability of them to any particular circumstance working or building with concrete. The ASCC reserves the right to rescind or modify these position statements at any given time.
