Authorities and Requirements

Authorities

Public Officials

Typically, a standard of protection is not lowered by a jurisdiction. In many instances, the requirements of a published code or standard are adopted and enforced by the jurisdiction as presented in the code. This process makes the adoption quite simple.

The State of Massachusetts has created their own set of documents for fire and building safety. It is typical for a state or jurisdiction to modify an existing "model" code for their own purposes. However, it is not uncommon for a jurisdiction to develop criteria that apply only to their jurisdiction. This is usually based on common practices from the past that the new code may not recognize or simply adopting requirements that they feel “fit” their jurisdiction.

Often, public officials are viewed as protecting people. But they also protect the investment that a community has in its tax base and the cultural aspects that the community may possess.
