Netherlands Seismic Loading

Netherlands Seismic Loading

Hello Everyone!

Has anyone ever designed structures in the Netherlands? I'm going through the National Annexes and converting them to English (as the NEN does not provide them in English; Dutch Only) and I can't seem to find the National Annex for Seismic Actions. My site is outside of the induced seismic activity (due to Natural Gas Exploration; Northern Netherlands) but I cannot find information for seismic design outside of this region. There isn't a National Annex from NEN that I could find.

Furthermore NEN-EN 1990+A1+A1-C2-NB 2019 has a note (after running it through Google Translate) that says "Earthquake Loads are considered to be an extraordinary design situation..." at the end of Section A1.3.2 as a Note.

Can someone clarify my confusion? Do we have to design for seismic in this region?
