Second Public Review & Comment Period Opens for the Draft BSR/TPI 3-201X, "Design of Bracing for Metal Plate Connected Wood Trusses"

A second Public Review & Comment period for the draft BSR/TPI 3-201X “Design of Bracing for Metal Plate Connected Wood Trusses” is now open. The Public Review & Comment period will be open until October 19th, 2015.

TPI began the process of developing the new TPI 3 standard in March of 2009 with the formation of a Project Committee representing a cross section of the industry. The first draft of the standard was open for review and comment on August 8th, 2014. After carefully considering all of the comments received in the first review period, the Project Committee made several substantive revisions to the draft standard and therefore have initiated a second Public Review and Comment period to allow for comments on these changes.

Those wishing to comment on the draft TPI 3 standard should submit comments to TPI using the TPI 3-201X Public Review COMMENT SUBMITTAL FORM prior to the close of the Public Review Period on October 19th, 2015. Additional information about the TPI 3 project, including project scope and draft download information can be found on the TPI 3 Project page.

Printed copies of the draft standard are also available for $20 each plus tax and shipping & handling (prepaid by check or money order) and can be ordered directly from TPI.  Send your request with check or money order to Truss Plate Institute, 218 North Lee Street, Suite 312; Alexandria, VA 22314, (703) 683-1010.
