ISO 15928-1:2003 sets out a method for describing the structural safety performance of houses. It covers user needs, 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.
ISO 15928-1:2003 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.
It describes the structural safety of a house as a whole.
