Seismic vulnerability check


Legislative reference: DM 14/01/2008

Article. 2, paragraph 3, of the OPCM 3274/2003 establishes that “it is obligatory to proceed with verification, to be carried out by the respective owners, public and private, both of the buildings of strategic interest and of the infrastructural works whose functionality during the events seismics is of fundamental importance for the purposes of civil protection, both of buildings and infrastructure works that can take on relevance in relation to the consequences of a possible collapse ”. Only works constructed or adapted under the seismic regulations issued after 1984 and on the condition that they are located in areas for which the seismic classification is not more severe than when they were designed or adapted are excluded from this obligation. In particular, paragraph 3 of the art. 2 of the aforementioned ordinance prescribes the obligation for the individual owners of seismic verification of the buildings and the works themselves.

The law requires that the seismic verification must ascertain the level of adequacy of the work with respect to the standards defined by the technical standards in force (DM 14/01/2008).

At the end of the verification, in the event that the work is not fully able to withstand the seismic action levels envisaged by the current regulations, it will be necessary to calibrate the individual situations in relation to the severity of the inadequacy, the consequences, the financial resources and the implications in terms of public safety. The owners or managers of the individual works will define the most suitable provision, possibly identifying one or more levels of the actions, commensurate with the remaining nominal life and the use class, with respect to which it is necessary to carry out the work to increase safety within a set time.

The law requires that the seismic verification must ascertain the level of adequacy of the work with respect to the standards defined by the current technical standards (DM 14/01/2008), and not only identify (through the compilation of parametric information sheets) the construction type and the possible vulnerabilities in a qualitative way.
