Gail:

A standard occupancy building in Raleigh would be in Seismic Performance Category (SPC) B according to the 1997 SBC. Then there are no inspection requirements. There are specific inspection requirements for buildings in SPC C or higher (Sect. 1708.4). If your building is a high occupancy building or an essential facility, in may end up in a SPC higher than B.
