CIAQC is a non-profit 501(c)(6) founded in 1989 by four southern California trade associations--Associated General Contractors of California, Building Industry Association of Southern California, Engineering Contractors Association and the Southern California Contractors Association.

These signatory contractor organizations, through the Southern California Industry Funds, created CIAQC to help their members understand and navigate the ever-increasing web of government environmental regulation under which they operate their businesses and build our communities, our infrastructure and the environmental systems that will enhance California’s future.
Today several organizations and individual construction firms throughout the state are active in CIAQC. Member associations now also include the Associated General Contractors America – San Diego Chapter, Inc., California Construction Trucking Association, United Contractors, and the California Rental Association.

CIAQC assists the construction industry and regulatory agencies in the development of environmental regulatory strategies that will balance the goals of a healthy environment and a healthy local economy with the least adverse impact on the construction industry.
