Comments regarding 12VAC35-105-320: Fire Inspections

The regulation was amended to read, “The provider shall document at the time of its original application and annually thereafter that buildings and equipment in residential service locations serving more than eight individuals are maintained in accordance with the Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code (13VAC5-51). “ We are seeking clarification regarding the type and manner of documentation that will meet the Department’s standards in this section.  Statewide Fire Prevention Code does not currently require inspection for the locations noted in this section; however, the section requires documentation in accordance with the Fire Prevention Code. What documentation does the Department see as meeting expectations?
