Re: Anchor Systems Specifications

 Try the ICC/ICBO ES Reports for the particular products that you are looking for.  There is probably a footnote to the load tables, or maybe a note in the findings section of the report that allows 50% of the allowable capacity of anchors installed with inspection.  This was allowed in ICC ES AC 01 for mechanical anchors.  The new AC 193 handles this differently, (I think with phi factors as you noted).

Subject: Anchor Systems Specifications

I was recently perusing somewhere recently (yet I cannot remember where), through Hilti preparation techniques, and reductions in loads, or requirements for increased number of bolts in the case of non-licensed installers (or no special inspection type thing). 

Someone know where I would find these criteria?
