Hi Duncan:

Thanks for the reply. Verification inspections have been done all along (hypothetically) and both 537 and 536 reports are in order and OK. However, I am talking about the design and performance of the system. No smokes in stairwells, no duct smokes (not in original post but a similar example), no monitoring. The design is a 1960s design and never met any Building Code because there was no building code at the time.
Annual inspections, like much of the fire code, do not comment on design or require design changes. They only inspect what is there to ensure it is working as intended. Verifications also would not affect design when the building department gives them permission to do the project under OBC Part 11 instead of OBC Part 3.
