Re: Shop drawing review stamp

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We have been cautioned by our insurances in Canada to avoid the use of "approved".  Better to use "reviewed as noted" or "reviewed (for general conformance with the construction specifications)" ... etc.  By doing that it has been suggested that although we confirm that we have done our duty of care we do not guarantee that the shop drawings are free from exposure to liability.  We also often have in our review statements clause(s) emphasizing that the responsibility for fabrication,relevant and any associated design, still lies with the user of the drawings.

So that there is no confusion about what it means, my shop drawing stamps say:

APPROVED

APPROVED AS NOTED

RESUBMIT
