This part of ISO 15928 sets out a method for describing the structural safety performance of houses. It covers objectives, provides performance descriptions, establishes parameter descriptions, and outlines evaluation processes. It includes a description of permanent, imposed, wind, seismic, snow and other actions as well as structural resistance.
This part of ISO 15928 is intended for use in the evaluation of the design and construction of houses, in the international trading of houses or their sub-systems, and in developing risk-management tools for the protection of houses.
The ISO 15928‑ series does not specify a level of performance and it is not intended to provide a design method and/or criteria.
It describes the structural safety of a house as a whole.
NOTE 1 Annex A includes background information on this part of ISO 15928, guidance on its use, and suggestions on good practice.
NOTE 2 Details on references referred to in Notes are provided in a Bibliography.
NOTE 3 Structural serviceability, durability and other attributes are covered in other parts of ISO 15928.
