Report Templates for Construction Inspections per International Building Code (IBC)
iReport360 has simplified Construction Inspections (Special Inspections) using detailed, web-based daily report templates that include a series of questions and testing requirements that meet the specifications outlined in each chapter of the International Building Code (IBC) such as Concrete, Soils, Masonry, etc. The reports verify that the required Special Inspection items have been observed per the construction documents and IBC.
The reports in the IBC Report Templates are numbered and labeled to directly follow the IBC numbering system. For example, the following is an outline of the 2006 International Building Code for Section 1704 Special Inspections.

The 2006 International Building Code (IBC) shifted the responsibility of code enforcement to Special Inspection Firms and Design Professionals. All 50 states in the U.S. have adopted the IBC in part or whole as their state building codes. In order to obtain an occupancy permit, Section 1704 of the IBC requires the Special Inspection Firm and Design Professional to sign a document stating that all of the building code requirements were met during construction. Therefore, it is imperative that the Special Inspection Firm have a detailed understanding of the building code requirements and provide the proper documentation to confirm that the building code requirements were met.
Our developers have incorporated many years of experience in the quality control and testing industry to develop the special inspection report templates. The IBC Report Templates will give confidence to the design professional and building official that all requirements have been met, and allow for the goal of obtaining the owner’s Certification of Occupancy.
The International Building Code is revised or modified every 3 years. The adoption of the specific version of the IBC by individual states or countries may lag so it is important to know which code applies to your specific project.
