Special Seismic Certification

Inspector of Record

The inspector plays a key role in ensuring that certified components are properly installed so that SSC can be considered valid. They should:

  • Confirm correct equipment is provided
  • Review seismic label for conformance with certificate of compliance and site demands
  • Ensure equipment is installed and anchored in accordance with project approved documentation

A common problem is that inspectors begin to look into construction details of units.

As a properly labeled and certified unit, the inspector does not have the authority to inspect physical unit construction details.
