    The following two documents are required per NFPA 99 the 2012 Edition before verification. My question only for a straw vote is.


    What percent of time is this document really provided ?



    5.1.12.2.6.7  The 24-hour standing pressure test of the positive pressure system shall be witnessed by the authority having jurisdiction or its designee. A form indicating that this test has been performed and witnessed shall be provided to the verifier at the start of the tests required in 5.1.12.3.


    5.1.12.2.7.6  The 24-hour standing pressure test of the vacuum system shall be witnessed by the authority having jurisdiction or its designee. A form indicating that this test has been performed and witnessed shall be provided to the verifier at the start of the tests required in 5.1.12.3.

    That's up to the individual performing the verification. If they request/require it, the answer should be every time a verification is done.
