This Standard sets out data and procedures for determining minimum snow loads on roofs, balconies, walkways, and other building surfaces, in areas which receive significant snowfalls. It also provides guidance on the avoidance of common problems which occur mainly in alpine regions.

This Standard sets out data and procedures for determining snow loads to be used in structural design.
