Life Safety Code Floor Plans - Business Occupancies

Are Life Safety Code floor plans required for business occupancies?

If the buildings are classified as Business occupancies as defined by the 2012 edition of NFPA 101 Life Safety Code, then a Statement of Conditions (SOC) is not used. An SOC, when required, consists of a Basic Building Information tool and life safety floor plans. But it is prudent, if possible, to have a document that depicts the Life Safety Code features of any building, particularly those buildings where patients are treated, even if the building is classified as a Business occupancy.
