Definition of a Code Modification

If a building construction has been disapproved by an inspector, or the building design plans have been disapproved by a plan reviewer, or a construction code violation has otherwise been identified, and the owner cannot practically correct the deficiency, the owner may formally request a code modification. The modification process is the solution of last resort and approval of requests is not guaranteed. A Property owner should always first attempt to work with the code official(s) and/or other professional consultants, to find alternative conforming measures that would provide equivalent safety.
