The Building Standards Commission (BSC), Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and the Office of the State Fire Marshal (SFM) have released “45-Day Language” code-change proposals. Key proposals include:
- BSC’s update of the Green Building Standards for commercial buildings (including proposed requirements for alterations and repairs to existing commercial buildings)
- HCD’s update of the Green Building Standards for residential dwellings
- SFM’s update of the California Building & Fire Codes.
Once adopted by the BSC, this round of changes would take effect on a statewide basis on July 1, 2012.
As with previous updates to the codes, staff will be reviewing all proposed changes and preparing comments for submittal to the proposing agency and the Building Standards Commission, however we need your review and comments (simply click on the code name above for the drafts). Comments must be received by May 20th so we can have time to review and compile and provide to the BSC.
