New Requirements for Residential Buildings

Currently all residential buildings two stories or greater require a 410 - Tub Set and 475 - 2nd Plumbing Rough-in inspection. Beginning Sept. 1, 2016, these codes will be replaced with a new 445 inspection code.

This alleviates the need to schedule both the 410 and 475 inspections. The 445 inspection is required before the 120 framing inspection can be scheduled. This new inspection code will only apply to residential projects and will not affect commercial projects.
