I suspect that he means the ASCE Blast Resistant Design Recommended Practice
IIRC, that only has guidelines for HOW to do the design, it doesn't
prescribe acceptable blast overpressures. I believe you are correct in that
if he hasn't met your criteria, he hasn't met the requirements of the
specifications, regardless of what ASCE says.
