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

The codes the city uses are:

2018 International Building Code
2018 International Fire Code
2018 International Fuel Gas Code 
2018 International Mechanical Code
2018 International Plumbing Code
2018 International Private Sewage Disposal Code
2018 International Property Maintenance Code
2018 International Residential Code for One & Two Family Dwellings
2018 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code
2017 National Electric 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 www.iccsafe.org.
