California Wildland Urban Interface Code Information. Years of experience by the California fire service have led to a new strategy for reducing the chance of building loss or damage due to wildfire, with new regulations that are now mandatory within the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). California Building Code Chapter 7A requires building construction used in the exterior of buildings within Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fire areas to be fire-resistive construction.
Lumber products used as siding, decking or soffits in exteriors must pass state-mandated fire tests. The California Building Commission adopted the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) codes in late The majority of the new requirements take effect in These new codes include provisions for ignition resistant construction standards in the wildland urban interface.
