Structural Safety Code News

The Division of the State Architect’s (DSA) updates or changes to California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 24 may occur on either an 18-month code adoption cycle, or on an emergency basis (emergency rulemaking). Approved updates or changes to CCR Title 24 may be published as the triennial edition of the California Building Standards Code (published every three years), intervening supplements (also published every three years on a mid-triennial cycle), an emergency supplement, or errata.

State agencies may propose emergency changes to building standards or regulations related to the implementation or enforcement of building standards. Building standards law allows for the emergency rulemaking process and requires submission of the proposed emergency building standards to the California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) for review and adoption.

To view a full history of code-related proposals that DSA has submitted, please see the California Building Standards Commission website.

Recently adopted regulations or regulations that are currently in the adoption process are shown below. Developmental documents from past code cycles may be found in Rulemaking Archives below. Individuals may sign up for email notifications in DSA-SS Mailing List below.
