When drilling for epoxy anchors, generally the hole size is required to be 1/8" greater than the anchor diameter which puts the installation out of conformance to the UBC requirements of 1/16". Since all these anchors are installed under the continuous inspection of a Special/Deputy Inspector with a Controlled Activities Certification in "Drilled-In Anchors", the Quality Control is simple.
