The Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development is responsible for writing regulations
pertaining to licensed clinics. These regulations are identified in the California Building Standards
Code as "OSHPD 3". OSHPD 3 requirements for clinics shall only be applied to clinics that are
licensed pursuant to Health and Safety Code (H&S) Section 1200 (which includes primary care clinics
and specialty clinics) or outpatient services of a hospital licensed pursuant to H&S Section 1250.
The following documents are intended to assist designers, building officials, and clinic operators in
applying OSHPD 3 requirements and determining which jurisdiction has authority over the plan review,
certification, and construction inspection of clinic facilities.
