Seismic standard open for comment

Standards Australia’s BD-006 committee has released a draft of an amendment to AS 1170.4 Structural design actions – Earthquake actions in Australia for public comment.

Standards Australia says the main purpose of the amendment is to incorporate general editorial changes to improve clarity and remove ambiguity, as well as updates to the seismic hazard map.

The objective of AS 1170.4 is to provide earthquake actions and detailing requirements for the design of structures subject to earthquakes, including HVAC&R plant.

The draft is open for comments until COB Thursday, January 18, 2024 and is accessible through the Standards Australia public comment hub.
