Building codes provide minimum requirements for earthquake-resistant building design, including materials, design loads, and structural performance standards. These codes are typically based on seismic hazard maps and are intended to ensure the safety of occupants and the structural integrity of buildings during earthquakes. Compliance with building codes is essential for earthquake-resistant building design and is typically enforced through building permits and inspections.
