24.10.095 Commercial and Industrial Minor Structural Labels.

(Added by Ordinance No. 171773, effective November 19, 1997.)

A. General. Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 455.190 establishes special alternative inspections programs for commercial and industrial installations for other than new construction. One of these programs is the Minor Label Program. Implementation rules are found in Oregon Administrative Rules 918-100-000 through 918-100-060. The Bureau will operate the Minor Structural Label Program in accordance with the Oregon Administrative Rules. The Minor Structural Label Program utilizes minor labels in lieu of regular building permits. Random inspections are made to ensure compliance of minor work.

B. Requirements. Commercial and Industrial Minor Structural Labels may be used in all occupancies (including commercial, industrial, apartment and multi-family installations) except one and two family dwellings. Labels are sold in groups of ten. Labels expire six months from date of purchase and are not refundable. No more than one minor structural label may be used on any single project. A single project is defined as not more than one minor label used per calendar month for each address, suite or tenant space.

C. Work Allowed. The following work may be done under a Minor Structural Label:

1. Alteration, replacement or repair of up to 100 linear feet of nonbearing, non-fire resistive walls and partitions not part of the building shell, an exit or an exit passageway;

2. Window and door replacements or relocations not part of an exit or exit passageway and fit within existing openings. Replacement windows and doors shall comply with the requirements of the current State of Oregon codes, including but not limited to safety glazing requirements;

3. Lightweight interior awnings under 100 pounds total weight;

4. Removal and replacement of acoustical ceiling tiles in nonfire-rated ceilings of less than 1,000 square feet (replacement of supporting grid is not included);

5. Minor roofing repairs not exceeding ten percent of the roofing area.
