The experience of recent strong earthquakes having occurred in Romania or abroad, some of them followed by a disastrous impact, besides the general evolution of the level of information and knowledge, led in Romania to an increasing concern for earthquake protection, within the community of specialists, among decision makers, as well as for the population as a whole. This evolution is not singular. It could be witnessed at an earlier stage in countries that are at the same time more developed and affected by more severe seismic conditions, first of all in Japan and US (California).
