Standards Development: Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)
PRS-610: Standard for Performance Rated SIPs
Currently, there are no existing American National Standards covering Performance Rated Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). This standard, currently in development, will cover the manufacturing, qualification, quality assurance, design, and installation requirements for SIPs used in wall applications. Key stakeholders include structural insulated panel manufacturers and component suppliers, distributors, designers, users, building code regulators, and government agencies.
SIPs Standards Committee
APA hosted the inaugural meeting of the APA Standards Committee on Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) at the APA Headquarters in Tacoma, Washington on October 23, 2007. Since then, the committee has met several times and made significant progress toward the development of the PRS-610.1 standard for performance-rated SIPs used in wall applications.

The APA PRS-610 Standards Committee is composed of members representing manufacturers, design professionals, code agencies, third-party inspection agencies, and testing laboratories in both the U.S. and Canada. APA is a recognized standards developer accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
