House committee substitute amends the 2nd edition as follows.
Amends the proposed changes to GS 130A-336, which requires site evaluations to check for compliance with the conditions of the authorized on-site wastewater evaluator permit option under GS 130A-336.2 or the engineered option permit under GS 130A-336.1. Eliminates the new provision requiring the certified wastewater system contractor to schedule and conduct a pre-construction conference with the local health department at the proposed wastewater site no more than 10 business days prior to the start of the installation of the on-site wastewater system to determine that the conditions of the site have not been altered and that the proposed system can be installed as permitted. Makes technical changes.
Deletes the proposed changes to GS 160D-1105 that allowed a permit holder who has been informed by a local inspection department that an inspection required under the Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings has not been, or will not be, conducted within two business days after first requested, to obtain that required inspection from a licensed architect or licensed professional engineer after giving written or electronic notice to the local government.
Deletes the proposed changes to GS 160D-1109 regarding liability of inspection department members.
Renumbers the act's remaining sections accordingly.
Makes organizational changes to include all of the proposed changes to GS 143-139.4, which include amending subsection (k) and enacting subsection (l), in Section 14 (previously organized in Sections 15 and 16). Makes the changes effective on the date the act becomes law (previously, new subsection (l) was effective October 1, 2022).
Further amends GS 143-139.4 by adding a new subsection to require that personnel assigned by the Commissioner of Insurance to conduct inspections requested by permit holders who have been informed by the local inspection department that an inspection has not been or will not be conducted within two business days, begin conducting the inspection within two business days after the assignment is made by the Commissioner. Applies to inspections conducted on or after October 1, 2022.
Adds legislative history set forth in the lead-in language to the proposed changes to GS 143-139.
