Title: RE: Federal building code future

FYI
From Navy web page http://www.efdlant.navfac.navy.mil/Lantops_15/home.htm:
"The seismic design criteria for new buildings is TI-809-04, "Seismic Design for Buildings" dated December 1998. This manual replaces both NAVFAC P-355, Seismic Design for Buildings, 1992 and NAVFAC P-355.1, Seismic Design Guidelines for Essential Buildings, 1986.  ALL FY00 PROJECTS SHALL USE THIS NEW CRITERIA per Commander, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, HDN/ESC57 letter of 3 May 1999 <ftp://www.efdlant.navfac.navy.mil/downl/Lantops_15/TI80904_LETTER.PDF> and Commander, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, HDN/ESC57 letter of 7 June 1999 <ftp://www.efdlant.navfac.navy.mil/downl/Lantops_15/SEISMIC_DESIGN_NEW_BLDG_LTR2.PDF>.
The primary basis for TI-809-04 is the 1997 edition of the National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program (NEHRP) Provisions for Seismic Regulations for New Buildings and Other Structures, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) document 302.  A working knowledge of the 1997 NEHRP Provisions will be a requirement to execute a successful design.  ..."
