A question that can arise during the building design, plan review and inspection process, particularly as it relates to the use of innovative materials is; how should an authority having jurisdiction handle compliance and noncompliance where proprietary information and intellectual property (IP) is involved?

A building official’s role is to administer and enforce the adopted building code, nothing more and nothing less.

The place to begin to address key definitions, which are used all the time in building construction, is from source documents where definitions are found and adoption into law then occurs.

A question that can arise during the building design, plan review and inspection process, particularly as it relates to the use of innovative materials sealed by registered design professional (RDP) or approved source, is how an authority having jurisdiction should handle code compliance.
