Editorial Note The first building code in El Salvador containing seismic provisions was published on 1965. After that, a new version was published on 1989 (described here: http://iisee.kenken.go.jp/worldlist/16_El_Salvador/16_El_Salvador_Code.pdf). This is the information of IAEE. However, there was a new modification in 1994. In 2001, after the earthquakes, under the supervision of Ministry of Public Works, Guillermo Santana from Costa Rica, conducted an evaluation with a technical committee of 1994 code provisions. You can find it attached to this mail and I think it can be published by IAEE (it is free for downloading on internet).
