Frequency of the detailed verifications and/or assessments
The owner of the parking structure must obtain a detailed assessment and/or verification report of the said parking structure between 12 and 18 months following the construction of the parking structure.
If the parking structure is more than 1 year old and less than 5 years old by March 18, 2013, a report must be produced before March 18, 2014. This verification is, however, not required in the case where the engineer responsible for the monitoring of the construction of the parking structure had already produced a report that meets the same requirements as those specified for a detailed assessment and/or verification.
If the parking structure is more than 5 years old, the property owner must obtain a verification report in the 3 years following March 18, 2013.
The property owner must then carry out a detailed assessment and/or verification report every 5 years following the initial verification report. An assessment and/or verification report must also be carried out following any incidence that may have had an effect on the structural integrity of the parking structure.
