Welcome to SQUG


The Seismic Qualification Utility Group (SQUG) collects, evaluates, and facilitates the use of earthquake and testing experience data on behalf of its member companies.  Its mission is to maintain the validity of and to support and broaden the use of earthquake experience data as a cost-effective method for seismic qualification.

The group is organized under the auspices of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).  A description of SQUG is provided here.  A brief video describing the overall structure and contents of the SQUG web site may be viewed here.
