The NEHRP Recommended Provisions and its Commentary embody the state-of-knowledge criteria for design and construction of new buildings subject to earthquake hazards. The new knowledge and technologies contained in this resource document are diffused into the model building codes developed by the International Code Council (ICC) and several national standards, including the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) ASCE/SEI-7 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.

The March 8 BSSC Colloquium will be preceded by the BSSC Annual Meeting in the morning and followed by a Provisions Update Committee (PUC) meeting on March 9, and a Project 17 Committee meeting on the March 10. Stay tuned for registration information.
