California Adopts New Building Standards
California state standards for new buildings in the past several years were based in part on the Uniform Building Code, last updated in 1997.
The new code will be published in July and become effective Jan. 1, 2008. Besides the new international codes, the publication will include portions of the 2005 National Electrical Code, the 2006 Uniform Mechanical Code, and the 2006 Uniform Plumbing Code.
