Building Seismic Safety Council Code Resource Support Committee

Code Resource Support Committee (CRSC)

The role of this nation's model building codes and standards is critical to seismic design and mitigation. Any action that furthers the effectiveness of these codes and how they are used will significantly help meet the goal of reducing this nation's losses from natural disasters.

The BSSC Code Resource Support Committee (CRSC) monitors and contributes to the model codes and standards development process particularly, for the International Building Code (IBC), the International Existing Building Code (IEBC) and the International Residential Code (IRC) to ensure that they remain substantially equivalent to the latest edition of the NEHRP Recommended Provisions as defined by the ICSSC under Executive Order 13747 as well as other FEMA earthquake design guidance publications for new and existing buildings.

The CRSC develops and submits code change proposals that further support the NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions in other relevant standards publications. The CRSC works with the representative organizations such as ACSE, IBHS, NAHB, and SEAOC to identify and address these issues.”

The CRSC also supports related activities such as outreach and education materials to ensure that seismic hazards continue to be addressed.
