code advisory committees

Per Section 1-409 of the California Administrative Code (Cal. Code Regs., Title 24, Part 1), and prior to conducting any hearing or public comment period as part of the rulemaking proceeding required by the Administrative Procedure Act, the California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) assigns the initial code change proposals to one or more of the six Code Advisory Committees (CACs) specifically knowledgeable in the proposed building standards. CACs provide special technical review of proposed building standards and provide recommendations to CBSC and state proposing agencies.Public meetings are noticed and scheduled to ensure adequate opportunity for public participation and technical review. For information about the six CACs, members and the application process, see Section 1-209 through 1-211 of the California Administrative Code.
