Operating under the California State and Consumer Services Agency, the Building Standards Commission is charged with seeing that regulations of state law are carried out by the Department of Housing and Community Development and the Division of the State Architect. In addition, the commission is charged with delegating responsibility for specific sections of the law (which apply) to the city and county offices that oversee commercial and residential building standards and inspections.

The commission is limited to delegating responsibility to carry out laws passed by the Legislature relative to building standards. It does not enforce any regulations as a commission; enforcement is through the State and Consumer Services Agency.
