This seminar will focus on understanding and complying with the IBC requirements. How do I know if my project is subject to the IBC firestop special inspection requirements? Who do I choose as the agency that will conduct the special inspections? Who is responsible for choosing and paying for this agency? How is the inspection conducted? What happens if non-compliance is identified? These questions and more will be discussed during the seminar. It’s important to understand these procedures when seeking, selecting or wanting to become a firestop special inspector.
