DSA is authorized, per Education Code Section 17308, to develop and publish documents to clarify the application of the California Building Standards Code to public school projects.

To meet this responsibility, and also to provide consistency in code enforcement among its four Regional Offices, DSA employs a Uniform Standards and Procedures (USP) program. This program develops, reviews and publishes various documents that interpret code and notify stakeholders of policies and procedures necessary for DSA operations.

For information on USP document types, see USP Terminology.

Visit the DSA Subscription Page to be notified of publication of new or revised USP documents.
