The performance code is a standalone code. It is ultimately intended to be adopted as the main document in a jurisdiction which is supported by the other prescriptive codes such as the Building Code, Fire Code etc. That is how it works in various countries. It is well understood though that this may not be a reality immediately in all jurisdictions. Perhaps a transistional approach is to reference the document as a resource. If it is not adopted at all it is still an excellent tool for a jurisdiction and designers alike. Chapter 1 provides a detailed process when accepting performance designs (in our current environment - equivalencies) It walks through the responsibilities, qualifications, submittal, review all the way to the long term maintenance of the building or facility. Hopes this helps.
