The paper presents the analysis of the existing technique of seismic microzonation of building sites in Ukraine. There are discussed the previous experience of seismic zonation application and the background of general, detailed seismic zonation and seismic microzonation technique. Seismic microzonation regulatory documents that are used in Ukraine and abroad are analyzed. There are highlighted main issues of the technique of seismic microzonation of building sites in Ukraine that are: unreasonable selection of the soil volume to be investigated; lack of unique approach to define the relationships between soil attributes and seismic impact features; inaccurate assessment of the correlation between soils seismic stability and groundwater level. There are proposed the ways to solve these issues.
