We present the sample of gamma-ray bursts detected with the anti-coincidence shield ACS of the spectrometer SPI on-board INTEGRAL for the first 26.5 months of mission operation (up to Jan. 2005). SPI-ACS works as a nearly omnidirectional gamma-ray burst detector above ~80 keV but lacks spatial and spectral information. In this catalogue, the properties derived from the 50 ms light curves (e.g., T90, , Cint, variability, ) are given for each candidate burst in the sample. A strong excess of very short events with durations <0.25 s is found. This population is shown to be significantly different from the short- and long-duration burst sample by means of the intensity distribution and test and is certainly connected with cosmic ray hits in the detector. A rate of 0.3 true gamma-ray bursts per day is observed.
