Code Development & Analysis

Title 19 Regulations Development

The Office of the State Fire Marshal (SFM) Code Development and Analysis Program staff regularly reviews Title 19 – California Code of Regulations for relevancy, necessity, conflict, duplication, and overlap. They also implement legislative mandates to develop regulations relating to fire and life safety involving the various occupancy classifications under the authority of the California State Fire Marshal. This encompasses the actual administrative processing of regulations from concept to promulgation in the California Code of Regulations.

Regulations are processed in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act (APA). This Act promotes public participation in the development of regulations. The Code Development and Analysis Program staff work in conjunction with the State Office of Administrative Law (OAL). They also coordinate regulatory development activities with fire service organizations, State Fire Marshal advisory committees, and numerous professional and advocacy organizations.
