What are the different parts of TIO?
• Part B – Tests
• Part C – Inspections
7-141 (e) The testing program shall identify
materials and tests to be performed on the
project. The firm(s) and/or individual(s) to
perform each of the required tests shall also be
identified.
Part B Tests – Firms or Individuals
Part C Inspections - Individuals
• 7-149 (b) The governing board or authority of
a health facility shall select a qualified person
or testing laboratory as the testing agency to
conduct the tests.
• The selected person or testing laboratory
must be approved by the architect or engineer
in responsible charge. The governing board or
authority shall pay for all tests.

inspector of record, the distribution of
responsibilities for the work shall be clearly
identified for each inspector of record.
• CSI Specification sections
• TIO Program line items, which IOR is
responsible to monitor this work
• Any additional information on locations
7-141 (f) The inspection program shall also
identify all special inspections to be performed
on the project and the individual(s) to perform
the inspections.
Special Inspectors required to be listed on the
TIO for Line Item, area worked, any additional

• 7-141 (c) The term "personal knowledge," as
applied to the inspector, means the actual
personal knowledge that is obtained from the
inspector's personal continuous inspection of
the work of construction, in all stages of its
progress at the site where the inspector is
responsible for inspection.
• Where work is carried out away from the site,
personal knowledge is obtained from the
reporting of others on the testing or
inspection of materials and workmanship…
• Special Inspectors are not required, but may
be used if the IOR cannot cover the work
• Cannot impede the IOR’s other duties.
• If the IOR is certified/qualified to perform
special inspections and approved by the
design professional and Office, they can
perform these
• Part D Observations – Milestones
• Part D Observations - Intervals
• 7-141 (g) The observation program shall
identify each professional that must, through
personal knowledge as defined in Section 7151, verify that the work is in compliance with
the approved construction documents.
7-141 (b) All architects and engineers to whom
responsibility has been delegated for
preparation of construction documents as listed
on the application shall observe the work of
construction for their portion of the project.
Managing the TIO is part of this duty.
• 7-141 (c) The architect or engineer in responsible
charge or having delegated responsibility
may name one or more persons to act as
alternate(s) for observation of the work
of construction provided such persons are
architects or engineers qualified under these
regulations to assume the responsibility assigned.
Observation – Part D on the TIO Program
Does NOT mean they can edit the TIO Program
Office Approval

Who creates and approves the TIO
• The responsible design professional
– Usually an Architect who is on the permit
– Responsible design professional builds the TIO
Program from their other professionals (MEP,
Structural, etc…)
• The Office
– OSHPD Plan Approval
•
•
•
•
•
Architect
Structural
Mechanical
Electrical
Fire and Life Safety
Office Approval
7-141. Administration of construction.
The administration of the work of construction shall
be under the responsible charge of an architect or
structural engineer.
Where neither structural nor architectural elements
are substantially involved, a mechanical or electrical
engineer registered in the branch of engineering
most applicable to the project may be in
responsible charge of the administration of the
work of construction.
How does the TIO affect the
project
• If the following items are not on the TIO program at
the time of bidding, then the contractor/TC may not
be aware of specific requirements
•
•
•
•
Minimum code required Tests
Minimum code required Inspections
Project specific Milestones
Project Specific Intervals
What does the OSHPD Field Staff do to
the TIO
•
•
•
•
Review and approve any comments
Review and approve the IOR Matrix
Review and approve special inspectors
Review the documents and give final “sign
off” of Part B, C and D items.
Is there another approval by the Office
for the TIO?
• Yes, OSHPD Field Acceptance
– Review any and all comments on the TIO Program
• Items which are required to be followed up in the field
– All TBD on the Part B & C are completed or at least
have one person or companies name in place.
FAQ
• Question: My OSHPD field staff is telling me I have to
do specific tests or inspections which are not part of
my TIO and they are telling me to add it.
• Answer: The office approves the initial TIO program, it
is a “living document”. Any edits (approve or remove)
must go through the appropriate design professional
who is on the permit who will determine if it is or is
not required. OSHPD field staff must document their
desire to do so, the designer will deem if it is or is not
necessary.
What does the Responsible Design
Professional do to the TIO
• All edits to the TIO
– Updating Part B & C TBD items to an individual or
firm
– Interview and approve all special inspectors, prior
to OSHPD field staff doing their interview and
approval
– Maintains and manages the TIO program
• 7-149. Tests (a) Pursuant to Section 7-141, the
architect or engineer in responsible charge
shall establish and administer the testing
program.
• Where job conditions warrant, the architect or
engineer may waive certain specified tests
contingent upon the approval of the Office.
What do the IOR(s) do the the TIO
• Maintains all of the documents for Part B
– All test reports are held as evidence of conformance
• Maintains all of the documents for Part C
– All inspection reports are held as evidence of conformance for
that TIO Inspection Item
• Reports to the design professional, works under their
direction
– Design professional interprets and directs the IOR on their
intentions.
• Reports any issues to the FDD personnel
– If there are questions and concerns the IOR has between
designers direction. Then the IOR has no further involvement,
what the designer and FDD decide that is it.
What do the Special Inspectors do to
the TIO
• Provide documentation as evidence of
conformance, or not.
• Do not need to give a verified compliance report
for Part B or C items, their daily reports suffice.
• All deficiencies are required to be tracked and
corrected, so you should know if the work is in
conformance.
• Report to the IOR, provides personal knowledge
to the IOR.
What do the Contractor(s) need to
know on the TIO
•
•
•
•
Needs to know what is open at all times
Needs to know what tests are required
Needs to know what inspections are required
Needs to know who is approved to inspect
what special inspections
• Needs to know who is the IOR approved (on
multi IOR projects) is for specific work (usually
determined by CSI Spec Section).
What do the TC’s need to know about
the TIO
• Who is the IOR who is responsible to perform
the work on their specific CSI spec section
• Need to know who the IOR is for their TIO Part
B & C line item.
Verified Compliance Reports
• Not required for Part B or Part C
• May have to submit one if OSHPD FDD specifically
asks for one for one part.
• 7-151. Verified compliance reports.
(a) In accordance with Section 7-151 (e), or when
required by the Office, the architect(s),
engineers(s), inspector(s) of record, special
inspector(s) and contractor or owner/builder shall

report,
• What is one thing that will help the
contractors when reviewing a TIO…. Aside
from knowing this information.
• Have their own codes (CBC’s) and
specifications (NFPA, ASTM, etc…) which are
required (as listed in the CBC version which
the project is permitted) for the work.
