The Building Codes

The Building Codes were established to provide minimum design and construction standards to ensure the wellness and safety of the general public in relation to the construction and occupancy of buildings.

New Code Adoption January 1, 2023

The California Building Standards Commission updates the State building codes (California Code of Regulations, CCR, Title 24) every three years. Beginning January 1, 2023, the 2019 state building codes will be replaced by the 2022 codes.

We encourage applicants to submit their permit package no later than 12/16/22 to allow for adequate processing time before the holiday closure.
