Plan Review and Construction Observation

Comment and Process Review

The Comment and Process Review (CPR) is a procedure clients should use to promptly resolve issues concerning:

  • Plan review and construction observation comments.
  • Processes such as emergency, over-the-counter, and expedited reviews.

Clients initiate CPR by discussing the issue with the staff member shown at the first level (level 1) of the appropriate CPR Path.

  • If the issue is not resolved at level 1, clients have the option of proceeding to level 2.
  • If the issue is not resolved at level 2, clients have the option to proceed to level 3.
  • After level 3, clients may appeal unresolved issues by following the Appeal Procedures of the Hospital Building Safety Board.

CPR Path Level Contacts

  • Important Points

    • The goal of CPR is to promptly resolve all issues that develop between Facilities Development Division (FDD) staff and its clients at the lowest possible level.
    • FDD staff must respond to the client within 24 hours.
    • Decisions are non-binding if the decision is made by FDD staff not listed on the CPR Paths.
    • Decisions must not be construed as establishing a decision for future requests.
    • At any level of the CPR Path, FDD staff may require the submittal of an Alternate Method of Compliance Form (OSH-FD-126). FDD staff at levels 2 and 3 of the CPR Paths is responsible for approving or denying all Alternate Methods of Compliance requests.
