I remember reading a bunch of threads refeing to who is and who is not an AHJ

I found a definition:
Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) An organization,office,or individual responsible for enforcing the requirements of a code or standard. Therfore Joe Schmoe bar owner down the street could not be an AHJ unless he qualifies.

Who dubs thee qualified? I think in a way, the owner of the facility is an AHJ.

I would like to see more accountablility than responsibility assigned in the field of AHJ's. I'm sure we'd start seeing more proactives if the AHJ's could be held accountable for neglect or abuse of their positions.

Last week I attended the NFPA 96 Committee Meeting in Baltimore. Great function. PWNA submitted several proposals that were approved.

I thought I would also mention it here, considering there has been so much discussion. NFPA 96 has recognized PAC, PWNA and IKECA within its pages.

We should all see the results this next year in 2007 Edition.

Great News! Unfortunately, it will take each state about 4 -6 years to adopt the 2007 edition. Lets see that would be somewhere around 2011 - 2015! I can hardly wait...
 
Stan, by your presence and comments you have already helped. Just keep plugging away.

Doc, did you see Rusty Ace at the NFPA 96 meeting?

Grant, you are overly optimistic. Oregon has not adopted NFPA 96 in any form yet. They use IBC codes that are not near as inclusive as NFPA 96.

To paraphrase some guy from Canada, if there is no fuel, there is no duct fire.

I had prior arrangements and tried to attend via tele-conference, but was unable to get it set up.

Fortunately, they keep me up to date on anything that has happened.

You would think that NFPA would have a trigger to note organizations that have let’s say 100 active members with a certification protocol. I would say that I would tend to recognize Rustys over a general acceptance of PWNA. For the simple reason is the focus on our industry only.:)

It's called sleep deprivation. I had a guy quit so I've been pulling double duty this week. I worked 22 hours wednesday and have been at it since 11pm last night. Kind of makes you silly.:p

One man from a two man crew. I am my only one man crew. You only work that hard if you own it.

What would it take to get one of you Californians to send me a box of Hostess Chocodiles? Best I can find is $9 abox plus shipping, what a rip off.

I would have thought my post would have received more scrutiny. PWNA did submit several proposals while attending the committee meeting yet NFPA 96 did not acknowledge any organization in its pages.

With all of the arguing about who is what and why it should be, I find the conversation interesting considering the lukewarm response if certifying organizations were put into NFPA 96 as a reference.

What is my point? We spend much energy discussing who is talking to whom and if they are doing it to make money. As industry professionals we further banter who is qualified or credible and which entity is best to represent and be acknowledged by the industry.

It seems all of us have varied opinions on what is right for the KEC industry. If we are unclear as individual companies and contractors what message does that send to those who enforce?
