I have been asked what is the national standard for steel design and construction in the United States. My reply was that the AISC spec is the de facto standard. But is this true or is there a national standard of which I am unaware. I have seen large engineering companies in the US put out their own specifications but they also invariably quote some part of the AISC spec.

Be aware that AISC 306-05 is a DESIGN specification. The specifications you refer to that are "put out by large engineering companies" are more typically FABRICATION and/or CONSTRUCTION specifications.

Each has a distinct function.
