This International Standard establishes the means to derive seismic actions on nonstructural components and systems (NSCS) supported by or attached to new or existing buildings. It also provides procedures for the verification of NSCS seismic capacities. NSCS include architectural elements, mechanical and electrical systems, and building contents.
This International Standard is not a legally binding and enforceable code. It is a source document that is utilized in the development of codes of practice by the competent authority responsible for issuing structural design regulations. This International Standard is intended for application by regional and national standards committees when preparing standards for the seismic performance of NSCS.
This International Standard does not specifically cover industrial facilities, including nuclear power plants, since these are dealt with separately in other International Standards. However, the principles in this International Standard can be appropriate for the derivation of seismic actions for NSCS in such facilities.
NOTE 1 This International Standard has been prepared mainly for NSCS associated with engineered buildings. The principles are, however, applicable to non-engineered buildings.
NOTE 2 Procedures for the verification of the supporting building structure for gravity and seismic actions applied by the NSCS are outside the scope of this International Standard and are provided in ISO 3010.
