New Framing Checklist Requirement
The State of New Jersey has adopted a rule change which now requires that a framing checklist be completed by "the responsible person in charge of work" *prior to receiving the required framing inspection by this office. NJAC 5:23-2.18(b)1iv(1)(E).
Each of the boxes marked "B" shall be checked off as appropriate and signed by "The responsible person in charge of work"*
This new rule adoption is effective immediately. If you have not yet received the new inspection checklist, it is available online here, or at this office.
The Checklist is required for all new construction, additions, etc. where constructed in whole or part with wood or engineered lumber.
*"The responsible person in charge of work" is the person who is responsible to the owner for insuring that all work is installed and completed in conformity with the regulations. This person could be the architect or engineer, contractor, or a third party acceptable to the construction official. NJAC 5:23-2.15(b)
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Construction office.
