Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act of 2010 (SB 183), was signed
into law by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on May 7, 2010.
Landlords, property managers and property managements companies should
take a note of the bill as they would required to install carbon
monoxide detectors in the properties they manage or rent out.
183 requires existing homes and dwelling units to be outfitted with
carbon monoxide (CO) alarms, beginning in July 2011. The new law will
complement provisions in the 2010 California Residential Code and 2010
California Building Code that require the installation of CO detection
and notification devices in new dwellings in the state, beginning in
January 2011. With passage of this law, California joins more than two
dozen other states in requiring CO protection in homes and other
residential and commercial occupancies.
monoxide poisoning is the leading cause of accidental poisoning death
in the United States. High concentrations of CO-a colorless, odorless
gas that is produced when fossil fuel is incompletely burned-can cause
cognitive impairment, loss of consciousness, coma, and often death.
Carbon monoxide detection and notification devices installed in
residential and other dwellings provide an effective way to reduce the
incidence of CO poisoning.
carbon monoxide detectors must be setup no later than July 1, 2011 in
all rental units and apartment units should have the device by January
