Yes, mostly. All FEMA recommendations will be considered. Those that qualify for translation into requirements for design and construction when subjected to the trial and fire of the consensus process will be brought into the AISC Seismic Provisions through the consensus process. A 2002 full revision is currently being finalized. Not everything is appropriate for inclusion as a requirement and not everything may pass muster with a consensus review.

Other recommendations may find a home in the AISC Seismic Manual we're just starting the development process for based upon the 2002 AISC Seismic Provisions.
