Webinar to Explain OSHPD’s Proposed Seismic Design Category: SPC-4D
Learn details of proposed SPC-4D and how to determine eligibility

CHA will hold a webinar May 12 from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. (PT) to explain the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development’s (OSHPD) proposed building standards for a new seismic design category — Structural Performance Category 4D (SPC-4D). The proposed category meets the requirements of the Hospital Facilities Seismic Safety Act and acceptable structural engineering practices. SPC-4D standards are currently under review by the California Building Standards Commission and, if adopted, will provide an alternative seismic category for hospitals to consider in meeting their 2020 and/or 2030 deadlines.
