Bulletin BU 19-02: 2016 Pre-Check Extension and Renewals to the 2019 CBC has been revised to extend the effective date allowing the use of all 2016 pre-check (PC) plans until June 30, 2021 (see Section 1). This deadline has been extended to allow manufacturers to accommodate their high demand while obtaining approval of site-specific project plans in compliance with the 2019 California Building Code.

In addition, Section 2 has been revised clarifying the applicable design criteria, and geologic hazard report criteria when required, for use of 2016 PC plans.

For manufacturers who wish to have their PC plans approved by DSA for use by July 1, 2021, we strongly recommend submitting the PC plan sets to DSA for review by January 1, 2021.

Please direct any questions to Jim Hackett, Principal Structural Engineer, Code and Standards Unit, at jim.hackett@dgs.ca.gov.
