Building Seismic Safety Council Project 17

Project 17 Committee (P17C)

Every ten years (’97, ’07 and ’17), the BSSC sets design maps rules to support USGS in developing the next generation of hazard maps. The Project 17 Committee (P17C), through the efforts of five work groups that address acceptable risk, precision and uncertainty, multi-period spectra, deterministic caps, and Seismic design Categories will develop proposals on the rules as a Provisions Update Committee (PUC) IT (Issue Team).
