Residential Seismic Assessment and Retrofit Standard Consensus Committee (IS-RSARC)
August 5, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
As an ANSI accredited standard developing organization, ICC is undertaking a project coordinated with the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) and FEMA to develop an ICC Standard for the seismic evaluation and retrofit of one and two family dwellings (including townhouses) designated as ICC 1300, Standard for the Vulnerability-Based Seismic Assessment and Retrofit of One- and Two-Family Dwellings.
The development of the standard will be initiated with FEMA P-1100 as an initial draft. This committee will have primary responsibility for the development of minimum requirements to safeguard the public health, safety, general welfare by providing a methodology for the identification, evaluation and retrofit of specific known vulnerabilities for one- and two-family wood light-frame dwellings up to 2 stories in height located in Seismic Design Categories B through E. This will include the use of the best available seismic numerical modeling tools and engineering practices to assist in development of assessment methods and to identify retrofit criteria to best achieve targeted performance objectives. Use of the provisions is anticipated to improve earthquake performance but is not necessarily intended to prevent earthquake damage. Also included is the evaluation and retrofit of masonry chimneys attached to 3 story buildings.
