The Inspector shall confirm that the permit hard cards are displayed in a conspicuous place at the front of the premises during the entire time the work authorized by the permit is in process.  If work is not being performed in conformity with plans and specifications, or approved plans are not available onsite, the owner or agent shall be notified in writing that the proper paperwork must be maintained and available on site for the Field Inspector.

The Building Official, upon notification from the permit holder or his agent, shall assure that the following inspections have been made and that either the portion of the work completed has been approved or the permit holder or his agent has received notification by leaving written notice at the job site, wherein the same fails to comply.  It shall be the responsibility of the permit holder to confirm that mandatory inspections have been approved before proceeding with any additional work.

No inspection shall be made until sanitary facilities have been provided as required in Section 311 of the Florida Plumbing Code.
