Comments:

This checklist provides plan reviewers with a consistent structure to follow in verifying code compliance. However, it does not
contain reference to all code sections and is not intended to limit review scope if non-compliant items are observed that are not
listed in this form. Designers may also benefit from its use, with those caveats in mind.
Instructions: Each item is followed with a code reference that correlates with 2012 NC codes. If the review results in code
compliance comments, most will be referenced on this checklist in the appropriate locations, by entering their numbers from the
accompanying review letter. The lack of an entry for any item on this form means either the plans were found to be compliant based
on just the detail present at this phase of design OR that particular code section was found to be not applicable. That can change
as the design progresses, or if previous plan details are altered.

SINGLE OCCUPANCY (302) OR NONSEPARATED USE (508.3)


In a building with a single occupancy, the construction type is based on the maximum allowable area for the single use
group. In a non-separated mixed use (508.3), the construction type is based on the most restrictive occupancy height
and area identified in Table 503.

report submitted (NCACP, section 106.2)

Note: Request and verify that a COMcheck compliance report for the project is submitted for plan review. Check that the report
indicates compliance. Check that the plans and specifications match the inputs noted in the reports. Check that there are no obvious
omissions from the program inputs. Sections of the report include building, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing. Note that
COMcheckautomatically minimizes report content to match the elements actually present in the building and input into the program.
This facilitates plan review and field verification.
