Existing Building / Inspection Checklist

Reporting of Systems required by Fire Code 
Letter Template Mailed to Companies

We have adopted a web-based solution called ComplianceCenterTM  from BuildingReports®  (www.buildingreports.com) based on its ability for paperless compliance oversight, ease of communication and “no fee” structure for all stakeholders (Compliance Center is a free public service for Building Owners, Service Companies and Fire Code Officials).

This notice is to clarify that all fire and life safety test and inspection records are required to be filed via ComplianceCenter as per Item 108.3 of the adopted IFC Code 2018 edition:

“Records shall be made available for inspection by the fire code official, and a copy of the records shall be provided to the fire code official upon request. The fire code official is authorized to prescribe the form and format of such recordkeeping. The fire code official is authorized to require that certain required records be filed with the fire code official.”

If your customers buildings have any of the following fire protection systems in place, the test and inspection compliance records for these systems are to be filed using the above method:

  • Fire Alarm System(s) §
