The HCAI Office of Statewide Hospital Planning and Development (OSHPD) Building Standards Unit is responsible for developing administrative regulations and building standards for the construction of hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, licensed clinics, and correctional treatment centers in California. These regulations are developed, as necessary, to implement the provisions of the Alfred E. Alquist Hospital Seismic Safety Act of 1983.

Building Standards Unit staff work in conjunction with HCAI’s architects, engineers and construction observation staff, the Hospital Building Safety Board, and interested members of the public to develop code language for new building standards and amendments to existing standards in the California Code of Regulations, Title 24, California Building Standards Code. All regulatory proposals are submitted to the California Building Standards Commission for approval and adoption.

Title 24 California Building Standards Code

HCAI/OSHPD has submitted proposed actions (code changes) that have been adopted and will be included in the Intervening Supplement to the 2022 California Building Standards Code, Title 24. The Intervening Supplement will be published on January 1, 2024, with an effective date of July 1, 2024.
