As a part of the Quality Control process the plans must be checked for the following items before a Field Plan
Review is requested. The Project Manager (or his appointed designee) must verify that the items are correct
and date and initial each line.

All lines must be completed. If a N/A is entered, initials must be entered.

I certify that persons named above have completed the checklist as part of the Quality Control process and the
plans are acceptable quality for the Field Plan Review..
