Masonry Inspection requirements can be traced back as far as the 1943 Uniform Building Code, but were not well defined until recently. Specification for Masonry Structures, TMS 602-16, not only contains tabled inspection requirements for three Quality Assurance Levels, but also introduces requirements for certified field testing technicians and laboratory testing technicians similar to the requirements contained in ACI 318.

This presentation will provide insight on the new requirements for masonry inspection and testing while also highlighting key aspects that structural engineers need to be aware of when preparing their quality assurance plans. Tips and suggestions on preparing special inspection and testing plans will be given to help designers appropriately specify appropriate inspections and tests for their projects.
