The paper presents aspects on post-seismic assessment of buildings according with Italian model. The authors of this work participated to international teams for building damage assessment in the framework of STEP (Strategies and Tools for Early Post-earthquake assessment) European project, after L’Aquila earthquake in June, 2009, and as invited experts in the framework of final workshop of Dr. House European Project in April, 2013. The projects were inserted within the framework of the Community Mechanism, whose main task is to facilitate co-operation in civil protection assistance interventions in the event of major emergencies which may require urgent response actions. The STEP project was a pilot project which constituted the technical and technological background for the Advanced Seismic Assessment module. ASA module was developed for strategic and/or complex structures, with dedicated instrumentation. According to the program activities, meetings were related to participation in international teams for post- earthquake assessment of buildings damages, organized by the Department of Civil Protection of the Council of Ministers of Italy as well as to applied of the visual assessment methods of state buildings in the field according to some special forms and exchange of experience at national and regional level with other European countries to develop common methodologies, taking into account national provisions in this regard, including the U.S. and Japan. In the EU context, the main purpose is to evaluate the possibility of participating in the investigation of international teams of experts damages in the event of major earthquakes that will hit some regions. Lessons taken by Romanian experts have been implemented in the post-seismic assessment system developed by NIRD URBAN- INCERC. Will be presented modern techniques used by the experts teams in the field as non-destructive methods, seismic instrumentation, temporary instrumentation, modal and dynamic analysis of buildings, and fast data transmission techniques from the field to clearinghouse. The data taken from the field will update the database created in INCERC Bucharest whose structure and operating will be presented.
