JJ, as long as that's the Building Code that applies to your jurisdiction I 
 don't see why you couldn't.

However, my opinion (which you didn't solicit): I'd use Profis or Simpson 
Strong-Tie Anchor Designer. They're free, they allow you to have control 
over many of the various conditions you might encounter (for which the IBC 
chart might not be appropriate) and they also handle post-installed anchors 
 which most of us run into frequently enough.

As you are still in the Neolithic (😜), I see that Simpson has an ASD 
version and I believe Profis does too.

Oh, and I just noticed this:
