Committee Updates

In 2021, the Committee developed a position paper which was endorsed by vote of the SEAC membership. The paper encourages the use of a minimum of Seismic Design Category B for Risk Category II and higher buildings.

Position Statement on Seismic Safety

In prior years we have also reviewed the Building Seismic Safety Council Member Organization ballots in support of ASCE 7 code development and review. The next cycle should start in 2025.

The SEAC Seismic Committee also assists the City and County of Denver in adoption of the  International Building Code with Denver Amendments. The SEAC Building Department Committee will facilitate this process and obtain input from the SEAC Seismic Committee. The next cycle should start in 2024.
