CBSC code amendments

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

The seismology is currently watching with interest to see if Califormia decides
to include amendments in the adoption of the IBC.  While it has always in the
past added amendments to the UBC, these amendments only appied to
state-controlled buildings (schools, hospitals, prisons, etc.).  The state
merely adopted the UBC provisions as-is for privately-owned buildings.  Before
an amendments can be brought foreward, state authorities need to obtain an
opinion from the Attorney General's office as to whether they are legally able
to make these amendments, unless any legislative changes are made.
