STATE OF CONNECTICUT DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY DIVISION OF FIRE, EMERGENCY AND BUILDING SERVICES OFFICE OF STATE FIRE MARSHAL Policy Directive # 7 Replaces: Directive # 7, dated 3/80, 9/87 & Policy 98-02 Administered by: OSFM Date: July 1, 2001 Duration: Until Revised Authority: Deputy State Fire Marshal SUBJECT: PURPOSE: INSPECTION REPORT TO STATE AGENCIES The purpose of this policy is to provide local fire marshals and their staff with a single form for reporting their inspection findings to state agencies that require a fire code compliance inspection of a building or facility prior to the agency's approval for licensure. DISCUSSION: Many activities conducted within buildings are subject to permitting, certification or licensing by various state agencies. Examples of such regulated activities include providing health care, holding public gatherings for meetings or education, serving alcoholic beverages, and the housing, educating, and caring of children. In the past, each state agency had developed its own certificate of inspection to be completed by the local fire marshal. Some state agencies required additional information beyond the scope of the local fire marshal's responsibilities or statutory authority, such as the inspection of one and two family dwellings, which are not regulated by the Connecticut State Fire Safety Code except for smoke detection. The Office of State Fire Marshal, working in cooperation with the state agencies, has established a single form to report to a state agency the findings of the local fire marshal's code compliance inspection. This form has consolidated the numerous agency forms. POLICY: This standard form is to be used in place of any state agency form intended to document a fire code compliance inspection by the local fire official. After the completion of a code compliance inspection in accordance with Connecticut General Statutes § 29-305, the local enforcement official would document the findings in a written inspection report. The inspection certificate is to be completed to reflect code compliance status and the recommendation of the local fire official, enclosed with a copy of the written inspection report, and forwarded to the requesting state agency for their regulatory process. (NOTE: Some state agencies require an original certificate of inspection.) This form replaces the " heater Inspection Certificate" and the old green " aycare Certificate".
