Originally, LARR 25405 specifically limited the use of SIP panels (for this specific manufacturer) to SDC A, B & C.  However, the same LARR report was later modified to included Table 12 which has maximum allowable shear wall loads for  SDC’s D, E & F.

We have used them, I don’t believe the ICC reports address seismic D however.  NTA has published some testing for at least for one manufacturer that has additional detailing requirements for D, E, and F.  We have incorporated those and used SIPs for shearwalls, but not in the city of LA however.

I researched this a while back and there are 3 of which I am aware that have an ICC ESR's.  You have to search on SIP and on insulating panel to find them all on the ICC site.  I have not used them in So. California, but they should work well.  I have a little more concern with moist climates.
