Does the California building code require a sewer drain clean out port inside the dwelling?

This info may be old or not apply to your situation. But my instinct says indoor cleanout is required for most building circumstances.

Maybe not "outside the building" but usually somewhere close. The maximum distance between cleanouts will also be a factor.

When a cleanout is required I always face it on the exterior wall outside so you can eliminate getting the interior of the home nasty from waste water. Sometimes you don't have a choice but something to keep in mind.
