  • Code Inspections

1.2.6 Code Inspections

You have already learned that an environmental review is completed first. Now the design of the spray booth, its hardware and installation will be evaluated through code inspections. Traditional code inspections deal solely with the hardware of the booth and its design, as well as its installation.

City and county authorities conduct code inspections to evaluate hardware and installation methods for compliance with OSHA, NFPA, and other regulations and local ordinances. Some municipalities are now writing EPA compliance into their local ordinances as well.

Inspectors evaluate hardware and installation methods for compliance with

-Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards;

-National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Bulletin 33 (Spray Applications);

-NFPA 70 (National Electrical Code, or NEC);

-BOCA National Fire Prevention Code; National Building Code;

-UFC Uniform Fire Code;

-OBC Uniform Building Code;

-SBCCI Standard Fire Prevention Code; Standard Building Code; and

-any local ordinances.
