* *NEW FIRESTOP SPECIAL INSPECTION STANDARDS**
Firestopping is a critical area of fire protection in commercial buildings to limit the spread of building fires. This is the reason NYC Department of Buildings changed their new 2014 code to require firestop special inspections utilizing the ASTM firestop inspection standards for all buildings. According to these standards, the inspector shall provide visual and/or destructive testing for a percentage of the firestop systems. The New ASTM firestop inspection standards have proven to be an excellent standard to protect the liability of the special inspection agency and general contractors. To reduce your liability these standards need to be adhered to, so NYSSPE has supported firestop special inspection training for its membership.
