1972 – 50 years of service to the commercial industrial retail real estate industry – 2022.


March 4, 2011

The Building Standards Commission has set the dates for the next set of Code Advisory Committee Hearings. As required by industry sponsored legislation, all state amendments to the national codes must first go through one of BSC’s Advisory Committees prior to any action by the full commission.

Code changes related to disabled accessibility issues will be heard on Wednesday, March 16. General building and fire safety issues will be heard on Thursday, March 24th and a full-day hearing to discuss green building amendments has been set for Tuesday, April 5th.

The code-change amendments that will be discussed at these three hearings are being proposed by various state agencies and if approved, would take effect statewide on July 1, 2012.

All of these advisory committee hearings will be conducted in Sacramento. As a result of CBIA-sponsored legislation in 2010, this will be the only interim-update to the state code before the next triennial edition takes effect in 2014. For access to all of these processes and proposals click here.
