This determination arises from the decision of the territorial authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 2-year-old house because it was not satisfied that it complied with the Building Code. The matters for determination are: 1- Whether the deck membrane and monolithic wall cladding as installed to the house comply with Clauses B2 and E2 of the Building Code (see sections 177(a) and 188 of the Act); 2- Whether other building elements, identified as outstanding matters by the territorial authority, comply with the relevant clauses of the Building Code. The territorial authority has identified only three items that prevent it from issuing a code compliance certificate, and this determination is therefore limited to the following matters: (a) ' the monolithic cladding; (b) ' the membrane used in the roof flashings and on the decks; and (c) the bearing capacity of the soil at the foundations.
