Special Inspection Program

The goal of the program is to bring consistency and clear direction to the special inspection process. All required documentation is separated out for easy submittal, review, and acceptance. The entire process is described, from being approved as a special inspector to the hiring of special inspectors, the special inspection processes, and expectations, and finally to the acceptance of the required final report. The roles and responsibilities for all parties are clarified. Additionally, fillable PDF forms allow effortless preparation of the required documents.

The program is broken down into its components to provide instant access for the community. The forms are as follows:

  1. The “Special Inspection Program” document explains the entire process with expectations for all parties as well as references to the associated required forms.
  2. “Statement Of Special Inspection Agreement” (BLD-1031) is a required form that is received at application and approved through the plan review process. This document requires acknowledgements from all parties involved, and definition of their roles and responsibilities.
  3. “Statement Of Required Special Inspections” (BLD-1032) is a required form containing the list of required and specific special inspections required for a project, as well as specifying what shall be printed on the construction plans.
  4. “Special Inspection Daily Report” (BLD-1033) is a courtesy form and provided to show what information is required. The special inspector or agency may use their own form, but all information requested on BLD-1033 is required to be on the form that is prepared.
  5. “Special Inspection Discrepancy Notice” (BLD-1034) is a courtesy form and provided to show what information is required. The special inspector or agency may use their own form, but all information requested on BLD-1034 is required to be on the form that is prepared. A notice of discrepancy is commonly completed using “Special Inspection Daily Report” (BLD-1033), and this will continue to be accepted practice.
  6. “Special Inspection Final Report” (BLD-1035) is a courtesy form and provided to show what information is required. The special inspector or agency may use their own form, but all information requested on the BLD-1035 is required to be on the form that is prepared.
