2016 Residential Energy Code Forms

Official California Energy Commission compliance documents you can download and use to show compliance with the 2016 California Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6 or Energy Code).

CF1R Forms (Residential Certificates of Compliance, non-HERS)

These Residential Certificates of Compliance (CF1R) are to be used only for Addition or Alteration projects which do not require any HERS verification.

If your project scope includes HERS measures, CF1R documents will need to be completed through a HERS Provider’s registry. See the California Energy Commission website for more information on HERS and the HERS program.

CF1R documents are to demonstrate the project design and equipment are compliant with the Energy Code at time of permit application. Please:

  2. Use Adobe Acrobat Reader 2017 (free) to fill in the form. Do NOT use Adobe Acrobat or other PDF editing software. Using Acrobat Reader 2017 ensures the forms work correctly.
