Afghanistan’s National Construction Codes

Afghanistan’s building codes were finalized and approved by the Norms and Standards Department of Afghanistan on Sunday with technical assistance from Turkish engineers.

The building codes are a set of norms for construction which will be applicable in architecture plans, urban development, roads and highways and buildings.

The process of creating the codes cost around USD 2 million.

“We are hopeful of having a better a positive outcome by implementing these new construction codes,” head of Norms and Standards Department Popal Popalzai said.

HARAKAT, a non-governmental organ that helps with development of business environment in the country, contributed towards the funding of the project.

“The building codes will help boost investment in the construction sector of Afghanistan’s economy,” said Head of Harakat Nasim Akbar.

Construction in Afghanistan to date followed foreign codes and norms, which were proven to be insufficient or in applicable to Afghanistan’s climate and environment.
