    Significance and Use

    5.1 This practice is intended to provide a standard set of guidelines that are to be followed when conducting and reporting on inspections of installed firestop systems.

    5.2 This practice is intended to provide a means to verify compliance of the installed firestop systems to the inspection documents.

    5.3 This practice is not intended to provide a basis for selecting installers or products or both.

    5.4 This practice is not intended to establish any performance criteria of the inspected firestop systems.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the establishing of procedures to inspect firestop products and firestop systems, including methods for field verification and inspection.

    Note 1: This practice is referenced in the International Building Code, Chapter 17, Special Inspections.

    1.2 This practice addresses all types of firestop products that become firestop systems once installed to the tested and listed system or judgment into fire resistive assemblies.

    Note 2: Firestop System is defined in Test Method E814. Firestop products are the products used in constructing a firestop system.

    1.3 This practice provides methods by which qualified inspectors verify that required firestops on a project have been installed and that their installations are in accordance with the inspection documents.
