I believe a complaint installation rules!!! It’s sad to say, but many inspectors are being laid-off because their first line of contact (Permit purchaser) is being mistreated. So essentially, the EC rules—if the EC purchases (Which I believe is essential for most work) a permit. We need to start seeing the permit purchaser as paying customers, and stop seeing the inspector and AHJ as rulers (chest-out). EC vs AHJ and inspector should= working together to insure a compliant install.As far as code compliance it is the inspector and AHJ.
