Expert systems for current seismic hazard assessment (CSHA) are ensuring successful assessments. The new automated system, “Huys”, for CSHA was developed at the NSSP. At present the zone S of current seismic hazard, and its time interval Δt for earthquakes with Mmax≥M≥3.5, are defined by “Huys”. The value of Mmax for S zone is defined through seismological data. The “Huys” software is a self-educational program with everyday data acquisition. Retrospective testing of the “Huys” software for the 8 seismic events with M≥3.7 that occurred in Armenia in 1993-2007, resulted in good coincidence of distances between the epicentres of tested earthquakes and computed zones of current seismic hazard, as well as between computed times of earthquakes and the actual time. Maximum magnitude Mmax was defined through seismological methods.
