City of Atlanta Approves Third Party Construction Inspection Pre-qualifications, Procedures, and Operations Manual

April 26, 2021

The Georgia General Assembly recently amended state law, relating to standards and requirements for construction and alteration of buildings, to allow private companies/inspectors to perform building inspections, which certify that such work complies with the Georgia State Minimum Construction Codes. The use of private inspectors is important to the City’s ability to inspect and approve construction projects in a reasonable time period. The amended law also allows local governments to implement pre qualification standards and procedures to ensure standards of professional responsibility are satisfied, and so that third party inspectors and the City can work efficiently.

The Third Party Inspection Manual is provided for your review.
