Record of Inspection For Structural Steel Works

State Building Code requires that the structural engineer of record (SER) establish and direct a program of structural tests and inspections for the construction of most engineered structures. Verify that fabrication is performed in accordance with approved welding procedures and keep details on record. Verify that fabrication is in accordance with approved shop drawings, specifications and any other contract requirements. Lastly, assure fabricator’s conformance with their Quality Control Plan
