The recent paper of D. Bindi and S. Parolai (Bindi and Parolai, 2015; hereafter referred to as BP15) considers discrepancies between variants of seismic‐hazard estimates for central Asia. BP15 notes that for this territory the levels of hazard estimated in Ulomov et al. (1999; hereafter referred to as Ul99) during the construction of the Global Seismic Hazard Assessment Program (GSHAP) map shows a clear mismatch when compared with similar maps for neighboring areas: hazard estimates of Ul99 are systematically larger. Indeed, when Zhang et al. (1999) who were responsible for aggregating probabilistic seismic‐hazard assessment (PSHA) maps for...
