Whenever it is necessary to make an inspection to enforce the provisions of this code, or whenever the code official has reasonable cause to believe that there exists in any building or upon any premises any conditions or violations of this code that make the building or premises unsafe, insanitary, dangerous or hazardous, the code official shall have the authority to enter the building or premises at all reasonable times to inspect or to perform the duties imposed upon the code official by this code.

If such building or premises is occupied, the code official shall present credentials to the occupant and request entry. If such building or premises is unoccupied, the code official shall first make a reasonable effort to locate the owner or other person having charge or con- trol of the building or premises and request entry. If entry is refused, the code official shall have recourse to every remedy provided by law to secure entry. When the code official shall have first obtained a proper inspection warrant or other remedy provided by law to secure entry, no owner or occupant or person having charge, care or control of any building or premises shall fail or neglect, after proper request is made as herein provided, to promptly permit entry therein by the code official for the purpose of inspection and examination pursuant to this code.

The code official shall carry proper iden- tification when inspecting structures or premises in the perfor- mance of duties under this code. The code official shall issue all nec- essary notices or orders to ensure compliance with this code.

The code official shall keep offi- cial records of applications received, permits and certificates issued, fees collected, reports of inspections, and notices and orders issued. Such records shall be retained in the official records as long as the building or structure to which such records relate remains in existence unless otherwise provided for by other regulations.

Whenever there are practical difficulties involved in carrying out the provisions of this code, the code official shall have the authority to grant modifications for indi- vidual cases, provided the code official shall first find that spe- cial individual reason makes the strict letter of this code impractical and the modification is in conformity with the intent and purpose of this code and that such modification does not lessen health, life and fire safety requirements.

The provisions of this code are not intended to prevent the installa- tion of any material or to prohibit any method of construction not specifically prescribed by this code, provided that any such alternative has been approved. An alternative material or method of construction shall be approved where the code offi- cial finds that the proposed design is satisfactory and complies with the intent of the provisions of this code, and that the mate- rial, method or work offered is, for the purpose intended, at least the equivalent of that prescribed in this code in quality, strength, effectiveness, fire resistance, durability and safety.

Whenever there is insufficient evi- dence of compliance with the provisions of this code, or evi- dence that a material or method does not conform to the requirements of this code, or in order to substantiate claims for alternate materials or methods, the code official shall have the authority to require tests as evidence of compliance to be made at no expense to the jurisdiction.

Test methods shall be as specified in this code or by other recognized test standards. In the absence of recognized and accepted test methods, the code official shall approve the testing procedures.

The registered design professional shall submit to the code official two complete sets of signed and sealed construction documents for the alternative engineered design.

The construction documents shall include floor plans and a riser diagram of the work. Where appropriate, the construction documents shall indi- cate the direction of flow, all pipe sizes, grade of horizontal piping, loading, and location of fixtures and appliances. Where the code official deter- mines that the alternative engineered design conforms to the intent of this code, the plumbing system shall be approved.

If the alternative engineered design is not approved, the code official shall notify the registered design professional in writing, stating the reasons thereof. The alternative engineered design shall be tested and inspected in accordance with the requirements of Sections and Materials, equipment and devices shall not be reused unless such elements have been reconditioned, tested, placed in good and proper working con- dition and approved.

Any owner, authorized agent or con- tractor who desires to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any plumbing system, the installation of which is regu- lated by this code, or to cause any such work to be done, shall first make application to the code official and obtain the required permit for the work.
