Contractors hiring testing firms on regular basis.

The conflict of interest form pertains to inspections/designs not monitoring.  The regulations state that the owner should hire the testing firm independently from the contractor.  We believe contractors are hiring the testing firms using the form to declare no conflict.  The new regs should clarify this is not allowed, the owner must hire the testing firm, to ensure no conflicts.
