SPECIAL INSPECTIONS - SICC 2009

Effect July 1st 2007, the North Carolina Building Code Council revised section 1704.1 of the NC State Building Code. The revision implements a mandatory statewide program of special inspections. The Catawba County Special Inspections Program was established in response to this mandatory rule. The Special Inspections Program generally encompasses commercial buildings that are designated as essential facilities and buildings that represent a substantial hazard to human life in the event of failure. The Special Inspections Program is administered and monitored by the Catawba County Building Inspections Division.
