It varies by manufacturer, depending how the ECC Eval was set up. R-Control (ESR-2233), for example, has a note in their report with the 1:1 limitation you suggest, but Enercept (ESR-1780) uses 2:1. Notwithstanding, R-Control has engineers on staff and seems to understand all this stuff better than Enercept. Don’t forget, though, that anytime you have a problem and need reliable strength, you can ask the manufacturer to put studs in and nail to your shearwall spec, and everyone I’ve worked with will do it with no complaints.

Considering that these panels are covered on both sides with 7/16” OSB it makes sense to me that these panels would fall under some “similar” method in the IRC, or maybe have capacities similar to 2x unblocked roof diaphragms – but I am not finding anything which validates this. Any leads would be greatly appreciated here.>>
