Research and development of Indonesian Seismic Hazard Maps in 2017 (IHSM-2017) have a direct impact on the development of seismic resistance code for building design in Indonesia. The development of new Indonesian seismic code for building and non-building design is still on-going, following the development of ASCE/SEI 7-16. This paper describes the development of design acceleration response spectrum (DARS) for building design. DARS-2019 is developed following the same method describes in the Indonesian seismic code [9] and ASCE/SEI 7-16. The study for developing DARS-2019 was performed at 35 cities in Central Java and Yogyakarta Provinces, Indonesia. A comparative study with 2012 seismic code (DARS-2012) was also performed in this study to evaluate the improvement of the DARS at those 35 cities. The analysis was performed for three different site soil classes (hard soil/SC, medium soil/SD and soft soil/SE). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the direct impact of the new ISHM-2017 on DARS-2019. Based on the analysis conducted at 35 cities, the improvement of DARS-2019 compared to DARS-2012 for site classes SC, SD and SE are less than 0.1 g except for site class SC at five cities located close to Opak fault trace.
