When would be the appropriate time for the Applied Technology Council (ATC) Board of Directors to recommend to FEMA that the authors of FEMA 273/274 (former ATC 33) prepare an errata (a list of errors in a printed work and of corrections) for FEMA 273/274, and for FEMA to issue such an errata, based on the forthcoming findings of the Building Seismic Safety Council Case Studies Project and the critical statements of at least two of the prominent authors of FEMA 273, who have raised serious questions concerning the some of the provisions of FEMA 273/274? With the ATC FEMA 273 Provisions Seminar series, now being offered nationally, it would appear to be appropriate for ATC to prepare such an errata as soon as possible so as to attempt to minimize the impact of some of the FEMA 273/274 provisions, which are now being questioned. The Board of Directors of the International Conference of Building Officials issued a special emergency announcement (not waiting for the normal building code changes cycle) deleting Section 2220.127.116.11 , Connection Strength, from the 1994 Uniform Building Code when it was discovered that the Pre-Northridge earthquake welded beam to column connections, based on Section 218.104.22.168, had significant problems. I would welcome comments from the authors of FEMA 273/274 and FEMA 310, which is based on FEMA 273/274, and others concerning the need for such an errata prepared and promulgated (made known to the public) as soon as possible.
