The COVID-19 pandemic brought to the forefront ‘new’ methods of conducting inspections in the built environment. As Contractors, Designers, Engineers, and code officials work to ensure building safety, NFPA is developing a new standard for Remote Video Inspection or Remote Virtual Inspection (RVI) resources.

Remote Virtual Inspections (RVI) are a method of inspection that allows the needed inspections to proceed in a timely manner by the owner or contractor located on the jobsite and the inspector or inspection teams performing the inspection remotely. Just like traditional on-site or in person inspections, an RVI is typically associated within a jurisdiction’s permitting process, the project, or contract schedule, and needs to be approved by the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ). While this practice gained good acceptance and implementation during the weeks and months of COVID-19 social distancing, its advantages are so great that it will likely become a popular and routine tool for the foreseeable future.
