Description:  Each participant in the design and construction process serves an important role in achieving the acceptable level of code compliance mandated by the adopted building codes.  Code compliance can no longer be achieved without the resources provided by manufacturers to create and test designs, provide technical information including engineering data to design the professional, submittal and product data to the contractor including installation instruction, product evaluation reports for acceptance by building official to verify or confirm code compliance, and warrant of performance to design professional and Owner.

Learning Objectives: After participating in presentation attendee will:
1.    Distinguish the roles and contributions required of each participant and types of warrants extended by design professionals preparing construction documents, contractors providing work; and manufacturers providing products included in the work, specifically systems and assemblies: also the difference between warranties and correction period to cure defects in construction or performance.
2.    Appreciate the resources, including expertise that product manufacturers provide to design professionals, code officials, and contractors in making building safe and able to achieve and acceptable level of code compliance for occupancy.  Also gain an understanding of how a manufacturer may implicitly provide warrant of compliance with certain code provisions by the issuance of a product warranty.
3.    Learn the significance of the submittal process in facilitating agreement between the requirements contained in the contract documents and those of the manufacturer with respect to installation and warranty. Also learn how to resolve conflicting requirements of manufacturer's warranty and contract documents. Discover how compliance, or non-compliance, with contract documents can create or transfer risk for compliance with the building code.
4.    Identify how manufacturers becomes a significant resource and contributor to the safety of the built environment by providing technical information including ICC Product Evaluation Reports to ensure that component products of systems and assemblies are manufactured, engineered, tested, distributed, properly installed, and inspected to insure a compliant building system or assembly.
