Chatsworth Products (CPI) recently obtained pre-approval of Manufacturer's Certification (OPM) from the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) for the following four popular products:
The OPM program is a voluntary program for review and pre-approval of seismic design of supports and attachments for nonstructural components to be used in health facilities construction in California. OPM should be referenced in Construction Documents for California Building Code 2013 based projects and may also be used for guidance in International Building Code 2012 based projects outside of California.
CPI also holds Pre-Approval of Anchorage (OPA) numbers and for several of our IT infrastructure products. However, the OPA program was discontinued March 1, 2013. Existing OPAs can be used for projects based on the code cycle under which OPAs were approved.
Reduce OSHPD approval cycle and keep your projects on track by specifying an OPM pre-approved product.
CPI will continue to submit equipment to OSHPD to obtain additional OPM number designations for CPI Products. To view the entire list of OPM and OPA approved products, go here.
