2022 Low-Rise Multifamily Energy Code Forms

Official California Energy Commission compliance documents you can use to show compliance with 2022 California Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6 or Energy Code).

These forms are for low-rise (three stories or less) Multifamily and Mixed-Use projects starting with the 2022 Energy Code. High-rise (four stories or more) projects should use the Nonresidential forms.

LMCC Forms (Low-rise Multifamily Certificates of Compliance)

The Low-rise Multifamily Certificates of Compliance (LMCC) are to demonstrate the construction documents are compliant with the Energy Code at the time of permit application.

Low-rise Multifamily projects that require HERS verification and are permitted after 02/15/2024 must be registered with a HERS Provider and therefore LMCC forms should be completed within the HERS registry as available. See CEC Advisory

Use the Virtual Compliance Assistant to walk you through form completion and produce the pdf you can take to the Authority Having Jurisdiction for construction permit application.

LMCI Forms (Low-rise Multifamily Certificates of Installation)

The Low-rise Multifamily Certificates of Installation (LMCI) are to demonstrate installations are compliant with the Energy Code. Complete these forms during the bid process to ensure your equipment and materials selections comply before purchasing.

Low-rise Multifamily projects that require HERS verification and are permitted after 02/15/2024 must be registered with a HERS Provider and therefore LMCC forms should be completed within the HERS registry as available.

LMCV Forms (Low-rise Multifamily Certificates of Verification)

LMCV documents are to demonstrate field verification and/or diagnostic testing is compliant with the Energy Code at the time of construction and should be submitted by the HERS rater to the inspector.

LMCV documents will need to be completed by a HERS rater. See the California Energy Commission website for more information on HERS and the HERS program.

You can use the Forms Ace tool to determine if your project requires HERS verification.

NRCA Forms (Nonresidential Certificates of Acceptance)

The Nonresidential Certificates of Acceptance (NRCA) are to demonstrate compliance with Acceptance Testing requirements in the Energy Code. These documents must be completed by a field technician or Certified Acceptance Test Technician (ATT) and submitted to the inspector.

  • Forms ending in a "-F" can be downloaded from the CEC's website, completed, and submitted to the inspector.
  • Mechanical and Lighting forms ending in a "-A" must be completed by a Certified Acceptance Testing Technician (ATT) through a Certification Provider's website. See the CEC website to find an ATT, and for more information on the Acceptance Testing Program.
