on Monday, September 27, 2021, and invited Zhang Xiaohong, Vice Minister of the Ministry of housing and urban rural development, Huang Yi, director of the fourth Legislative Bureau of the Ministry of justice, and Qu Qi, director of the Department of project quality and safety supervision of the Ministry of housing and urban rural development, to introduce the regulations on the administration of earthquake resistance of construction projects, And answered reporters’ questions.
First, it is clear that the competent housing and urban rural construction departments at all levels and other relevant departments should strictly supervise the implementation of the mandatory seismic fortification standards for construction projects, and clarify the measures that the regulatory authorities have the right to take when performing their duties.
My question is, what are the “real moves” and “hard moves” in all aspects of the measures proposed in the regulations? thank you.
Third, the State encourages and supports the R & D, promotion and application of new anti-seismic technologies, and more effectively improves the anti-seismic capacity of construction projects through more advanced technical paths.
In 2018, the regulations on the administration of earthquake resistance of construction projects were included in the legislative work plan of the State Council as an important legislative project to ensure and improve people’s livelihood and strengthen and innovate social governance.
Zhang Xiaohong: Thank you for your question.
In the process of examination and approval, the Ministry of justice has successively carried out field special research, industry discussion, inter ministerial consultation and coordination and public solicitation of opinions, repeatedly revised and improved, and finally formed the regulations (Draft).
I believe that with the implementation of these measures, we can effectively ensure the implementation of standards, especially mandatory standards, promote the development of seismic technology, and effectively improve the seismic supervision efficiency of construction projects.
Now you can start asking questions.
For example, the construction site suspected of violating the mandatory standards for seismic fortification can be sealed up.
First of all, please give a brief introduction to Mr.
“If you want to continue to receive the official account, please note that the” WeChat “is a public key.
Welcome to the regular policy briefing of the State Council.
The regulations have eight chapters and 51 articles.
General Secretary Xi Jinping stressed that at present and in the coming period, we must focus on strengthening organizational leadership, improving the system and mechanism, improving laws and regulations, promoting major disaster prevention and mitigation projects, improving the ability of city buildings and infrastructure to resist disasters, improving the level of rural housing fortification and resisting disasters.
However, it also faces some problems to be solved urgently.
For example, there are still weak links in some safeguard measures and supervision and management, and the mandatory standards for seismic fortification have not been strictly implemented in some construction projects; Due to historical reasons, the seismic fortification measures of old urban construction projects and rural construction projects are insufficient and the ability to resist earthquake disasters is insufficient; The responsibility regulations for seismic fortification, appraisal and reinforcement of construction projects are not perfect, and there is a gap with the needs of the whole process management.
CCTV reporter from China Central Radio and television: just at the beginning, you mentioned that the regulations are the first special regulations in the field of seismic management of construction projects since the founding of new China.
Next, the Ministry of housing and urban rural development and the Ministry of justice will seriously publicize and implement the regulations with relevant departments, accelerate the preparation and revision of supporting documents and relevant standards, guide and urge local governments to effectively improve the seismic management level of construction projects and ensure the safety of people’s lives and property.
Next, I will briefly introduce the relevant information of the regulations on the administration of earthquake resistance of construction projects.
Now, we are willing to answer your questions.
Huang Yi, director of the fourth Legislative Bureau of the Ministry of justice; Mr.
In the earthquake disaster, a considerable number of casualties are mainly caused by the collapse of buildings.
Qu Qi, director of engineering quality and safety supervision department of the Ministry of housing and urban rural development.
Today’s briefing will mainly introduce you to the relevant situation of the Ordinance.
In recent years, the Ministry of housing and urban rural development has strengthened the construction of rules, regulations, standards and specifications.
Please inform your news organization before asking questions.
Let me introduce these situations first.
When problems that may affect the seismic quality are found, the relevant units can be ordered to carry out necessary testing and appraisal.
The CPC Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to the earthquake resistance work of construction projects.
I’ll answer it.
Poster reporter: China is a country with many earthquakes.
More than 58% of the land and 55% of the population are in the high intensity area of earthquakes above 7 degrees.
Vice Minister of housing and urban rural development Zhang Xiaohong: Good morning, media friends! It is my pleasure to attend today’s regular policy briefing and take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to all media friends who have long cared about, paid attention to and supported housing and urban and rural construction.
Star setting: enter the official account homepage, click the “top” corner, click “set star”, and the official account will appear yellow Pentagram (Android The Information Office of the State Council held a regular policy briefing of the State Council at 10 a.m.
At present, it has basically formed an anti-seismic management system for construction projects covering feasibility study, preliminary design, construction drawing review, completion acceptance, project quality and safety inspection, so as to reduce the risk of earthquake disasters, casualties and property losses It has played an important role in ensuring and improving people’s livelihood.
The regulations on the administration of earthquake resistance of construction projects have been deliberated and adopted at the executive meeting of the State Council and officially promulgated, and will enter into force on September 1.
Fourth, the competent departments of housing and urban-rural construction shall, together with relevant departments, establish and improve the information database of seismic fortification of construction projects, and use big data technology and information means to improve the modernization level of seismic management.
The transcript of the press conference is as follows: Xing Huina, deputy director of the information bureau of the Information Office of the State Council and spokesman: Good morning, media friends.
Efforts should be made to guide the orderly participation of social forces.
Because the official account official has adjusted the push rules, if you want to continue to receive the contents of the official account, please set the public building number of the building as the star sign, and more points of the “look at” and “praise” in the end of the article.
In order to ensure that these measures can be implemented and effective, the regulations have made corresponding provisions in terms of safeguard measures and supervision and management.
The main contents are as follows: first, clarify the seismic fortification requirements and relevant measures for new, expanded and reconstructed construction projects; Second, standardize the seismic appraisal, reinforcement and maintenance of completed construction projects; Third, it is proposed to strengthen the seismic fortification of rural construction projects; Fourth, strengthen the anti-seismic guarantee measures and supervision and management of construction projects; Fifth, strengthen the legal accountability of the subjects related to earthquake resistance of construction projects.
The government should give necessary policy support in seismic reinforcement.
It is of great significance to improve the seismic fortification level of construction projects and the ability to resist earthquake disasters.
Earthquake disasters occur frequently, and destructive earthquakes occur from time to time..
Present at today’s briefing were Mr.
Zhang Xiaohong, Vice Minister of housing and urban rural development; Mr.
The regulations were promulgated on July 19, 2021 and will enter into force as of September 1, 2021.
This is the first special administrative regulation in the field of seismic management of construction projects since the founding of new China.
China is a country with frequent earthquakes.
Xing Huina: thank Vice Minister Zhang Xiaohong for his introduction.
During the drafting process, the Ministry of housing and urban rural development deeply investigated and understood the relevant situation in the field of seismic management of construction projects, systematically sorted out and summarized the long-term work experience and lessons, fully analyzed and learned from relevant foreign laws, regulations and system systems, and formed the regulations (Draft for approval).
In view of some weak links and prominent problems existing in the field of seismic management of construction projects in reality, the regulations put forward a series of effective and feasible measures.
The regulations (Draft) have been deliberated and adopted at the 135th executive meeting of the State Council.
Fifth, establish a credit record system for responsible enterprises and relevant employees of construction project earthquake resistance, further standardize the behavior of all parties and strengthen the implementation of responsibilities.
To solve these problems, we must improve the relevant system design from the legislative level.
Second, for some old houses that do not have seismic fortification measures or do not meet the seismic fortification standards, as I said just now, it is mainly caused by historical reasons.
It can be said that the anti-seismic work of construction projects is directly related to the safety of people’s lives and property, economic development and social stability.
