comparing seismic design standards to customer specification

Could someone please tell me how I can ensure that seismic design standards:

     IBC-2003 & ASCE 7-02
      Occupancy Category = III
      Seismic use, group II
      Importance factor = 1.25
      S1 = 1-sec. Spectral Response Acceleration = 0.5g
      Ss = Short period Spectral Response Acceleration = 1.25g
      Site class = D
      Seismic design category = D

     UBC 97
      Seismic Load Available to seismic zone 4.
      Occupancy category III
      Importance factor = 1.00
      Soil profile Type = Sd
      Na = 1.0.NV = 1.0

meet the following specifications:

     "The horizontal zero period acceleration(ZPA)applied to the
     top of the foundation supporting the Apparatus, its    
     attachments, and its support structures will be 0.2g (g is
     the acceleration due to gravity) and the vertical ZPA will
     be 0.13g. The duration of strong shaking will be 30 seconds"

Thanks in advance for your help
