In an effort to improve the harmonization of the Romanian design codes with the Eurocodes, the revision of the Seismic Design Code, P100-1, started in April 2010 and ended in September 2013. The main issues addressed during the revision process are presented in this paper. They include re-outlining the fundamental requirements for seismic design, revision of the seismic action, improvement of the specific provisions for the design of reinforced concrete, steel, composite, wood and masonry structures and non-structural components. This paper focuses on the specific provisions for reinforced concrete structures but general information about the fundamental requirements and the seismic action are presented as well.
