Organization Title

2007 California Building Standards Code Development and Adoption Project

The State Housing Law Program develops statewide building standards for new construction of hotels, motels, lodging houses, apartments, dwellings and buildings accessory thereto. The State Housing Law Program also develops building standards necessary to provide accessibility in the design and construction of all housing other than publicly funded housing. The building standards are published in the California Code of Regulations, Title 24, known as the California Building Standards Code.

Stakeholder input and participation is necessary to assist HCD in developing building standards, which will continue to assure the availability of affordable housing and uniform statewide code enforcement, and to protect the health, safety, and general welfare of the public and occupants of housing and buildings accessory thereto.
