The seismotectonic provinces are the basis of many seismology studies in a given area. The seismotectonic provinces, in which the seismic activity is distributed homogenously and lay in same tectonically and geologically region, are used as the basic maps in seismology studies and preparation of seismic hazard maps. In the last decays, the seismological studies of the Kurdistan Region (north and northeastern of Iraq) didn’t proceeded well and there are not comprehensive seismicity map and perfect Fault map in this region. Also, there is not efficient Seismotectonic division in Iraq, as well as in Kurdistan Region. The study area encompassed by the 40.50–47.50°E longitudes and 33.50– 39.50°N latitudes. This research reviews the structural zones, tectonics and neotectonics, fault map and finally the seismicity of area to delineate the seismotectonic provinces of Kurdistan region. In addition, the seismicity parameters (λ, and Mmax) related to each province have determined by common procedure of Kijko-Sellevoll. The earthquake database constructed using local networks (Iran and Turkey), international broadband (USGS and EMEC) networks and also data from published researches. Totally five seismotectonic provinces were delineated and their seismicity parameter were determined in this research which could be used as a basis of future seismology studies in Kurdistan Region.
