Due to the recent disasters worldwide particularly in the neighboring country of Haiti in 2010, the institutions that deal with disaster management policies have launched the National Plan of seismic Risk Reductions in 2011. According to the plan the methodology of evaluation of damages should review and validate in a period not exceeding one year. To meet this goal, the Dominican Guideline for post-earthquake seismic evaluation has been reviewed in this research.
In order to know how the current Dominican Guideline should be improved, relevant active guidelines and recommendations were reviewed. Knowing the weaknesses of Rapid Evaluation, the Detailed Evaluation and Engineering Evaluation, the improvements were proposed. The Rapid Evaluation and the Detailed Evaluation were improved by adopting a quantitative procedure and for the Engineering Evaluation by the proposal based on the concept of damage class, deterioration of seismic capacity and deterioration factor.
