pull-out bars

Is there provision in ACI or any standard/code that allows 'pull-out bars'? i am refering to a reinforcing bar that is bent and embedded in concrete wall/column, and then pull it out to connect/splice the  reinforcing bar of a beam or slab. (personally, i do not agree with this approach but some engineering firms allow it) please give me insight. thanks.
