"Drafts of the codices were prepared in mid-2013.
We are now fine-tuning it and I think we can release it this year," said U Aung Myint, VP of MES, on 8 April in The Myanmar Times. MES and UN HABITAT, which includes civil servants, experts and development engineers, are working together on Myanmar's construction regulations, which are scheduled to begin in 2011, July and probably 2015.
"The design alone is comprehensive, but we still want to make it workable for everyone. So, we still have some things to do, like discussion with vendors and engineers to be more specific with the codes," said U Aung Myint. The first stage of the design of the building code focuses on earthquake and wind resistance - the two most frequent catastrophes that have occurred here.
It is important, he added, that by 2015, when the ASEAN Free Trade Area becomes fully operational and it is likely that international development will be able to competing here. One Myanmar Engineer Forum member said that it is possible that the code is more about policy than law.
Delegates from the Ministry of Construction, Welfare and Relocation, Science and Technology, the YCDC, the Department of Settlement and Housing, the Association of Myanmar Architects, the Fire Department, the Myanmar Geosciences Society and experts from other industries are participating in the work.
