Building components, including roofing systems and those which protect the envelop of the building from being breached, must be approved by the BCCO Product Control Division prior to their use in building construction or rehabilitation. The Miami-Dade County Product Control Approval System was established to allow new and innovated ideas to be developed into useful, practical, lasting and safe products.Manufacturers submit technical documentation, including but not limited to test reports, engineering analysis and installation procedures. Our staff reviews the information and determines whether the submittal is sufficient to demonstrate compliance with the Building Code.
( The stringent test and review procedures required by Dade County are benchmarks for building code enforcement nationwide.)
