An epicentral map of the region with magnitude 3 till 7 for the period 1930 – 2007 showsthat the region to the Hormozgan Province , Southern Iran (52º 30’ - 59º E, 25º –29º N) is one of themost active region in Iran. In this paper a method is developed to produce for the engineer thedesired relationships between such ground motion parameters as Modified Mercalli Intensity (MMI)and their average return period for some parts (Bandarabbas Zone, Hajiaba Zone and Minab Zone)of that province. In addition we have calculated a relationship between return period and MMI for three parts of Hormozgan province, Southern Iran.
