Expertise Sought from Building Inspection Stakeholders

ASTM Subcommittee E06.21 on Serviceability seeks input from building inspection stakeholders to develop a Standard Specification for a Uniform Set of Requirements to Obtain Inspection Credentials. The group operates within ASTM Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings.

The main focus of the proposed specification will be to establish a common set of requirements for inspection credentials for potential use in the model building codes and related industries, particularly in inspections of firestops and joint systems.

“Currently, there is no coordinated effort between industry and the model building codes in this area,” said committee member John D. Nicholas, director of Listing and Labeling, Omega Point Laboratories, Elmendorf, Texas. “The Mechanical Building Code authorities believe that this is a valid and necessary scope of work.”

Those wishing to participate or provide input should contact John D. Nicholas, Omega Point Labs, Elmendorf, Texas (phone: 210/635-8100). Committee E06 meets April 14-17 in Pittsburgh, Pa. For meeting or membership details, contact Steve Mawn, manager, ASTM Technical Committee Operations (phone: 610/832-9726). //
