How do I get hazards zone maps for locations outside of the US?

We know of no current "zone" designations for sites outside of the United States. For locations outside the United States for which seismic design is required for military facilities, there exists a standard based on probabilistic spectral ordinates in the manner of the International Building Code and are declared to be consistent with the 2006 version of that code. These spectral ordinates can be found in the document," UFC 3-310-01, Uniform Facilities Criteria (UFC), Structural Load Data."We know of a version representing a date as late as December 2007. You can obtain this document by Googling this string: UFC 3-310-01, December 2007

The spectral ordinates can be found in Appendix D.
