Abstract
In an effort to inform Federal agencies about the most recent development on various earthquake hazards mitigation topics, informal workshops were convened by the Interagency Committee on Seismic Safety in Construction in Washington, DC during 1984. The report presents summaries of the workshop series which included the subjects of implementation of seismic provisions for Federal agencies, lifelines, seismic risk maps, and evaluation of existing buildings. The summaries provide an overview of the major topics discussed. Where applicable, recommendations that resulted are given.
