In this guidance document, the Interagency Committee on
Seismic Safety in Construction (ICSSC) recommends
appropriate approaches for Federal departments and
agencies to use in implementing the inventorying and
cost estimating requirements of Executive Order 12941.
The inventories and cost estimates are to be submitted
to FEMA by December 1, 1998. The ICSSC recommends that
all Federally-owned buildings be included in an
electronic inventory database of specified format.
Buildings are to be identified as either exempt or
non-exempt from the seismic standards adopted by the
order. All exceptionally high risk buildings are to be
seismically evaluated, and estimates of the cost of
their rehabiliation developed. Additionally, agencies
are to perform seismic evaluations on a representative
sample of their non-high-risk, non-exempt buildings, and
use this information to estimate the vulnerability of
that population and the cost of achieving adequate
