Nationally Applicable Recommended Rehabilitation Provisions (NARRP), 1997
In an attempt to bring order and clarity to the process of regulating work in existing buildings, HUD has sponsored development and publication of the Nationally Applicable Recommended Rehabilitation Provisions (NARRP), which set forth a recommended framework for addressing all types of work in every type of building. These provisions are intended to be suitable for use by State and local jurisdictions or model code organizations with a minimum of adaptation. They incorporate the philosophy that improvements required when work is being done in existing buildings should be proportional to the nature and extent of the underlying work. While such principles have been applied informally in the past, NARRP goes much further by making them explicit.
