IS Codes related to earthquake engineering have been revised recently which has resulted in few practical difficulties while implementation of new standards. It is a time for all structural engineers to gear up for bridging the gap between the latest methods / practices suggested in the revised codes vs the current industrial practices. For implementation of the codes, more communication is required between structural engineer’s fraternity for resolving doubts / queries, etc. and it is very much important to understand the overall philosophy of the code. At this juncture, authentication of software is also of paramount importance for proper implementation of the updated codes. We will discuss few such important clauses from IS codes [IS 1893 (Part 1):2016, IS 1893 (Part 4):2015, IS 13920:2016, IS 15988:2013 ].
