I think for most folks that had any experience with the BOCA Special Inspection requirements, the IBC Special Inspection program is really not much different.


With BOCA I found that not all local building officials enforced the requirement for the Statement of Special Inspection from the EOR, like wise I have yet to come across a building official that has required a formal Statement of Special Inspection per Section 1704.1.1 of the IBC.


What the IBC appears to include that BOCA did not, at least to the best of my knowledge, is a Quality Assurance Plan.


The IBC talks about what categories of structures require a QA Plan, but doesn’t really get into the specifics or real details of a QA Plan similar to what is prescribed for Special Inspections.


Has anyone had any experience with an IBC QA Plan submission?
