To add to this thread, I'd like to point out that bot '94 and '97 UBC Section 106, Inspection and ovservation program, REQUIRES the Engineer or Architect of Record to develop an Inspection Program that becomes part of the approved pans, PRIOR to the issuance of a permit. This Inspection Program is REQUIRED to specify the name of the individuals or firms that will be performing the Special Inspections and exactly what they will be inspecting. This puts the selection of the Inspection Agency in the Engineer's arena and helps to assure the elimination of conflict of interest issues. If the Inspection Agency is specified on the plans, it the Design Professional to whom the Inspection Agency is beholden. Currently, the SEAOSC Quality Assurance Committee is making a concerted effort to enlighten the involved parties of this requirement and get the plan checkers to ensure that this requirement is met.
