At this point in time, 137 people have looked at this posting. I'm sure someone would like to help you however, we don't have any idea as to where you are seeing this "2 latch" requirement. 

I've briefly looked in the most recent IBC and IRC and don't see such a requirement. Have you found a section that requires that?  

What edition year of codes are you working to?

Is the attic access you are speaking of a:

-ceiling scuttle with a drop in panel?

-pull down stairway? 

-short door in a knee wall?

By "clarification", what is confusing you about what is supposedly required?

We can't read your mind....please provide details so we can discuss.

 I am looking for clarification on attic accesses in garages requiring two latches on opposite ends of the opening.  Could anyone help?
