Model Code Development


CALBO strongly encourages all code officials to engage in the code development and change processes. Although CALBO focuses on state policy and rarely submits proposed changes to the model code-making bodies, there are many active code development committees administered by local and regional California chapters of the International Code Council. As opposed to duplicating their efforts, CALBO has developed this page a repository of chapter coordinated code change proposals. By sharing these resources, CALBO is not endorsing or soliciting positions on any proposal; rather, these are provided for your knowledge to encourage you to take your own position based on the information provided.

California Chapter Code Change Proposals
This excel file for code coordination is made available to all chapters, organizations, and jurisdictions by the LA Basin Chapter to enable participants to work together collaboratively. It consolidates the recommended positions on the various code change proposals by Committee members assigned as a representative to a participating chapter, organization, and jurisdiction in California. It should be noted that while the document is made publicly available, it should NOT be relied upon or utilized for any other purpose. As a working document, it may change significantly in subsequent versions as it is constantly being updated by Committee members. CALBO does not endorse any of these positions but is grateful to the LA Basin Chapter for their efforts and coordination.
