- These seismic evaluation and mitigation standards, Standards of Seismic Safety for Existing Federally Owned or Leased Buildings and Commentary, were developed for use by the Federal government by the Interagency Committee on Seismic Safety in Construction (ICSSC) in conjunction with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The project was funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The intent of this document is to provide Federal agencies with minimum standards for the evaluation and mitigation of seismic hazards in their building inventories.
