The Plumbing Code Board of Appeal consists of three members appointed by the Mayor. One member shall be a plumbing contractor whose experience and training qualify him to decide matters concerning the safety of installations and devices regulated by PCC Title 25; one member shall be a person engaged in the design of plumbing installations whose experience and training qualify him to decide matters concerning the safety of installations and devices and one member who shall be a member of the public at large. Code Board of Appeals hears appeals of plumbing code issues which are appealed beyond the Administrative Appeals Board. The Appeals Board may affirm annul or modify the action of BDS on the condition that substantially equivalent safety is provided generally conforming to national standards concerning fire prevention, fire safety measures, and building construction requirements for safety.
