On July 1st, 2016, the California Building Standards Commission published the state amendment packages to the 2015 model codes, including the 2014 National Electrical Code.  The existing 2013 California Building Standards Code will expire December 31, 2016. The existing 2013 California Building Standards Code contains the 2012 model codes (International and Uniform Codes), 2011 National Electrical Code, and 2013 California Energy Efficiency Standards and 2013 California Green Building Standards.

The newly adopted 2016 California Building Standards Code (CBSC) will become effective January 1, 2017.

Permits for all projects approved under the current 2013 CBSC must be issued before December 31,2016 or prior to the expiration of the plan review. All Standard/Master Plans must be updated to the new 2016 California Building Standards Code prior to the effective date of January 1, 2017. Permits shall not be issued until such time that plans are in conformance with the new code provisions.
