How is the inspection scheduled? Are there any unannounced inspections?

After a manufacturer is notified of the need for an inspection and the assigned inspector, the inspector will reach out to the designated facility contact for scheduling. Inspectors make every effort to conduct inspections during normal business hours and to avoid weekends and scheduled holidays. ICC-SRCC does not conduct unannounced inspections.

If an inspection is scheduled and the manufacturer needs to reschedule, they must do so BEFORE the date of the inspection. If the inspector arrives and is unable to gain access or if the necessary staff are not available (necessitating a return trip), additional fees will be imposed.
