CDBO Certificate of Occupancy

The State Fire Marshal Certificate of Occupancy is often the critical-path milestone for the occupancy of a project. The SFM Certificate of Occupancy, albeit important, is but one component of code compliance. Access compliance, DOSH permits, Health Department approvals, etc. must all be in place in order for project operations and occupancy to lawfully occur.

The CDBO has the responsibility to coordinate and confirm all required approvals. Once this is complete the CDBO issues a CSU Certificate of Occupancy confirming code compliance.

CBSC Appendix Chapter 1, administration, Section 110 Certificate of Occupancy has been adopted as policy under SUAM Section XI. The above is provided as a summary of requirements. See Section 110 for full wording.
