Information Bulletins

Information Bulletins are resource guides that provide consistent and uniform interpretation of Building codes, clarify code issues as they relate to new construction and new technologies, and explain new regulations.

As part of our continuing effort to enhance customer service and assist the construction industry, the Department of Development Services will continue to update and publish new Information Bulletins, and have them available on-line, in order to ensure constant and uniform interpretation of codes and regulations.

Beginning on January 1, 2017, the Department is required by State law to enforce the 2016 Edition of California Building Standards Codes ("Codes"). Some of the information bulletins contained herein may be impacted by the new Codes. Please be informed that the Department is in the process of updating these bulletins.

If you have questions, comments, or feedback, please contact us at

Thank you for you partnership in building a better Long Beach.
