Title: RE: UBC 1997 Special Inspections Zone 4

From the CA Professional Engineers Act, Business and Professions Code, Sections 6700 - 6799, CHAPTER 7

"6735.1. Construction supervision; legal duty The signing of civil engineering plans, specifications, reports, or documents which relate to the design of fixed works shall not impose a legal duty or responsibility upon the person signing the plans, specifications, reports, or documents to supervise the construction of engineering structures or the construction of the fixed works which are the subject of the plans, specifications, reports, or documents.  ..."

Sounds like if you've delegated the inspection to properly qualified persons you're not "required" to personally visit the site (although there are many circumstances which would make it necessary for the EOR to view the site).

I have a project in California, seismic zone 4 with Na=1.1. We are hiring a SPECIAL INSPECTOR to perform all required inspections and observations. My question is this...When would I be "required" to visit the site myself?

Thank you
