Welcome to the home page for the City of
Calabasas Special Inspection Program.
Sections 1704 through 1709 of the
California Building Code provide the minimum technical requirements
related to special inspections. The City of Calabasas has
established policies and procedures for the administration of these
technical requirements, which are based upon the unified effort of
many building officials and the
ICC Los Angeles Basin
Chapter and the
Region Chapter Model Special Inspection Programs.
The primary goal of the Calabasas
Building and Safety Division is to promote and maintain public
safety and a healthy environment through reasonable enforcement of
our adopted codes and ordinances. This Special Inspection Program
ultimately has the same long-range goals, but the underlying mission
is to help remove obstacles that may challenge special inspectors
who work throughout our region.
Both the Calabasas and Ventura
programs strive for success in a myriad of facets, but primarily the
program’s “roster” of registered special inspectors, with the
appropriate certifications and experience, and the administrative
processes of the program provide inspectors, design licensed
professionals, developers, and contractors in our vicinity a
one-stop source of information that includes universal forms and
All special inspectors working in
the City of Calabasas will be expected to maintain an exceptional
level of professionalism. Part of this professionalism is the
inspector’s duties and responsibilities to the Building Official,
project owner, engineer, and or architect.
