Foam Sheathing Committee (FSC)

The Foam Sheathing Committee (FSC) of the American Chemistry Council supports research and tools to assist the reliable, efficient and economic design and installation of foam sheathing. DrJ’s work as an independent ANSI 17065 accredited certification body, working in conjunction with FSC, facilitates the development of these code compliance reports. Find more resources about Foam Sheathing on the Continuous Insulation website.

The documents listed below assess the code compliance of specific Foam Sheathing Committee (FSC) products. IBC Section 104 and IRC Section R104 allow for the use of alternative materials, design and methods of construction.
