Assembly Bill 2190 (Chapter 673, Statutes of 2018) grants specified hospitals the opportunity to apply for an extension of the Jan. 1, 2020, seismic compliance deadline. The law requires all hospitals seeking extensions to submit an application to the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) by April 1, 2019.

The law also requires OSHPD to grant an additional extension if certain conditions are met.

To assist hospitals with the application process, OSHPD has published a Public User Guide providing step-by-step instructions for creating and submitting an application for a seismic compliance extension. For more information about AB 2190 and seismic compliance extensions, visit the OSHPD website
