Abstract: The Asian Concrete Model Code (ACMC) was first published in 2001 to provide a common framework for the design, construction and maintenance of concrete structures in Asian countries, including Australia. It consisted of a common Level 1 document which covers general requirements and three Level 2 documents giving specific requirements pertaining to design, materials and construction, and maintenance of concrete structures. The Code adopts a performance-based approach. It is supplemented by Level 3 documents, which are either national and regional codes, or technical reports and references, written in conformance with Levels 1 and 2 documents. The Code has been revised in 2006 to incorporate new developments in the field and to provide a consistent format throughout the documents. Commentaries are now included in all Level 2 documents, which would greatly facilitate their use in the development of Level 3 documents, of which four including a national standard, have been published. Among the Level 2 documents, a new section on Fire Action has been added in the Part I document on Design. This paper is intended to provide an overview of the ACMC 2006 with focus on the major revisions to the document on Design.
