          TRANSITORY RULES
FOR SUBCOMMISSIONS AND WORKING GROUPS
Subcommissions are considered dissolved, with the only residual obligation on the
chairpersons being to produce their final reports for the proceedings of the 2006
Geneva General Assembly.
Existing WGs will continue their activities until the Executive Committee meeting
to be held during the next IUGG General Assembly in Perugia, July 2007.
The WG chairpersons are invited to submit to the Executive Committee a proposal
defining the objectives and the activities that the WG would like to pursue for the
next two administrative periods (four years), or for a shorter completion period,
according to the new approved requirements for WGs. The Executive Committee
will evaluate these proposals for the re-establishment of the WGs.
The Executive Committee welcomes proposals for the establishment of new WGs,
which will be similarly evaluated.
WGs not providing the requested information on time will be considered dissolved.
                                                                       dissolved

                       3-8 September, 2006 - Geneva, Switzerland




EUROPEAN EARTHQUAKE CATALOGUE OF DAMAGING EVENTS

Recognizing
The need for a commonly agreed upon European-Mediterranean
  Earthquake Catalogue of damaging events,

Considering
The present availability on the web of numerous catalogues containing
  fake and doubtful data, errors and inconsistencies

The ESC urges
the European seismological community to co-operate in order to compile
   such a catalogue.

              1st European Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology
                         3-8 September, 2006 - Geneva, Switzerland




               EMSC MACROSEISMIC QUESTIONNAIRE

Considering
That access to the internet in ESC countries gives people the possibility to
  report on felt earthquakes in real time;
That the EMSC is testing a macroseismic questionnaire for this purpose

The ESC recommends
That the final draft is revised and approved by a related Working group
  and that the final version of the questionnaire is translated into all ESC
  national languages.

              SUPPORT TO EARTHQUAKE MONITORING
                 AND SEISMOLOGICAL RESEARCH
Recognizing,
The crucial importance of seismological institutions in ESC countries for
  the advancement of seismology and mitigation of seismic risk in the
  ESC area,
The need for a detailed monitoring of earthquake activity in the ESC area,
The ESC
Urges
All governments in ESC countries to provide adequate support to
   earthquake monitoring and seismological research
Recommends
That all institutions dealing with seismology in ESC countries are identified
   and a registry of such institutions is compiled, as well as a list of all
   existing networks, to be posted on the ESC webpage

                        3-8 September, 2006 - Geneva, Switzerland



       THE INTERNATIONAL ALLIANCE OF SEISMOLOGY AND
    EARTHQUAKE ENGINEERING PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS -
                 A JOINT COMMISSION OF IASPEI-IAEE
Recognizing
the new initiative towards a Joint IASPEI-IAEE Working Commission
   (JWC) – The International Alliance of Seismology and Earthquake
   Engineering Professional Associations - for promoting worldwide
   advocation of seismic safety and for influencing public policy in order to
   reduce seismic losses,

Considering
that ESC is a regional commission of IASPEI,

The ESC Recommends
that the Council mandates the Executive Committee to take the necessary
   actions for making ESC actively participate in the development of JWC-
   related initiatives in the European-Mediterranean region

                         3-8 September, 2006 - Geneva, Switzerland




        EDUCATION AND OUTREACH FOR RISK REDUCTION

Recognizing,
That the development of educational strategies has a key role in the
  reduction of social vulnerability to seismic risk and that this topic is of
  strategic value

The ESC recommends
That special efforts are made to ensure that reliable and authoritative
  education and outreach tools are distributed to the public

                             THANKS
Acknowledging
The hard work and warm welcome of the Local Organizing
  Committee in arranging the XXX General Assembly of the
  ESC in Geneva, organised within the first European
  Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology,
  and noting the success of the sessions, and fruitful
  outcomes of many meetings and debates, the ESC Council

Thanks
The LOC for all their efforts and expertise in organizing such a
  successful and memorable occasion in all respects: the
  quality of the facilities and excellent social program.
