Building and Safety Division
Information: (909) 384-5071 Fax: (909) 384-5080
Building and Safety Division - The Building and Safety Division's primary responsibility is the enforcement of Building Standards adopted by the State of California and the City of San Bernardino. These standards include the California Building, Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical, and Energy Codes, and Disabled Access Regulations contained in Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations. The Division also has responsibility for the enforcement of the California Mobile Home Park Act Regulations contained in Title 25.
The enforcement of these codes is accomplished through the "permit process". The permit process includes 1) the review of construction plans to determine design compliance with applicable codes, 2) permit issuance, 3) intermittent inspection of the construction work as it progresses, and 4) final inspection approval and the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy. The ultimate goal of the permit process is to insure that buildings which are constructed meet minimum code standards necessary to protect the public's health, safety, and property, and to promote energy efficiency and accessibility for disabled persons. The Division also investigates complaints regarding unpermitted construction, accessibility violations, and mobile home park maintenance violations. To contact the Division for service please call (909) 384-5071.
