Welcome to Special Inspections

When the North Carolina State Building Code Council adopted the 2002 International Building Code, they included specific language which gave local authority the ability to determine if Special Inspections would be applied on a local basis. Further, the NCSBC Council also granted the local authority wide latitude in determining how to implement the Special Inspections process on a local basis.

Beginning January 17, 2006, Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement introduced, The Paperless Special Inspection Management System. Projects that require Special Inspections, permitted after the above date, must meet the provisions set forth within and the 2012 NCSBC Chapter 17. Failure to meet these requirements may result in a stop work notice for that project.

Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement is committed to provide our customers and the general public with the highest level of service possible. By implementing Special Inspections, we will raise the level of quality assurance for construction that is completed in Mecklenburg County. is a comprehensive Special Inspections resource.
