South America Construction Class Codes

 

The following table lists the construction class codes that AIR supports for South America and identifies any model limitations associated with the use of these construction classes:

In some models, the construction and occupancy class code combination 100-300 is invalid, and Touchstone remaps this combination to 100-311. However, for exposures in South America, the construction and occupancy class code combination 100-300 is valid, and Touchstone does not remap this combination.
