The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association (SMACNA) will present "Hvac Duct Inspection" at the 2001 Joint Conference of the Building Officials and Code Administrators International and the International Conference of Building Officials in Cincinnati September 17-20.

The session will cover methods for performing inspection of air handling systems and provide outlines to organize and conduct inspections, as well as checklists that call attention to the basic features of ductwork and related items placed in duct systems. This presentation is intended to acquaint inspection officials with the basic requirements of duct construction, equipment connections to ducts, and items inserted in ducts as they are indicated in the SMACNA standards, and as mandated in the mechanical codes.
