Suspended Ceilings seismic joint

I am updating our in-house checklists and one item on there is 

"Ceilings over 2500 sq. ft. require seismic joint" And references ASCE 7   13.5.6.2.2 (h)

The CBC now references ASTM C635 & C636 (CBC 808.1.1.1) which does not mention it at all.  Is the ASCE document still valid?
