First Meeting of the Steering Committee
of the APEC Earthquake Response Cooperation Program
for Energy Supply Systems, Phase 2, 2002
Period: June 12-26, 2002
Meeting Style: Internet Meeting
topics will be revised as follows:
design-construction standards, regulations and best
practices for energy supply facilities.
emergency response, restoration plans, post-earthquake
construction and lessons learned for energy supply
application of advanced seismic early warning and
protection technologies in the energy supply industry.
Expert Group Workshop
discussion topics for expert group workshop will cover:
from APEC member economies illustrating best
practices in seismic design-construction
standards and regulations
for energy supply systems.
on how to improve the earthquake performance of energy supply systems.
on how to prepare and implement an effective emergency response and restoration plans after a
of the requirements of energy suppliers in APEC member economies for an effective co-operation mechanism
after a major earthquake.
Final Report Outline:
report name will be revised as:
Seismic design-construction standards, regulation
and best practices in APEC for energy supply systems.
Seismic Standard and Regulation Questionnaires on
Energy Supply System.
In the content, will replace "act" by "law",
"norm" by "code".
Questionnaires for Energy Facility Services/Construction
It is suggested to broaden questionnaire topic from
earthquake response experience to other natural disasters
and emergencies response experience; however, in that
case, it might be beyond the scope of this initiative.
framework of voluntary sharing information, experience,
and resources has been brought up. Since the cooperation
mechanism will be one of the topics to be discussed
at the Expert Group Workshop, it is suggested that
each steering committee member present their opinion
on the cooperation mechanism at the Expert Group Workshop.
