Proposed Revisions to Presidential Policy on UC Seismic Safety

The University of California Office of the President invites comments on a proposed Presidential Policy, UC Seismic Safety Policy, UC-CR-17-0324. The policy is proposed to be revised and includes the following key issues:

  • Policy implementation procedures are moved from the Policy and published to the UCOP website within the UC Facilities Manual. The UC Facilities Manual is a repository for information and procedures related to UC Capital Programs practices.
  • Technical seismic engineering standards are updated to reflect current California Building Code and industry standards, and where applicable, specification of technical seismic engineering standards are moved from the Policy to the UC Facilities Manual.
  • Policy requirements are clarified, and sections of the Policy Text are re-organized into a more logical sequence for clarity.

Please submit your comments no later than July 20, 2020 to Given the current environment and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 emergency, contact Lauren if a time extension is needed. If you have any questions, contact Lauren at or (510) 987-9947.
