Hollister has adopted several model codes as minimum standards for construction within the city.

The codes the city uses are:

2012 International Building Code
2012 International Fire Code
2012 International Mechanical Code
2012 International Plumbing Code
2012 Private Sewage Disposal Code
2012 International Property Maintenance Code

The Building Department performs plan reviews and reviews permit applications for compliance with the Codes. Permit fees are collected by the City Clerk’s office. Inspections on site are also done to assure that construction is in compliance with the code requirements. For more information about the International Codes you can visit
