The provisions of this Code shall apply to the erection, installation, alteration, repair, relocation, replacement, addition to, use, or maintenance of any heating, ventilating, cooling, refrigeration systems, incinerators or other miscellaneous heat-producing appliances.
Where, in any specific case, different sections of this Code specify different materials, methods of construction or other requirements, the most restrictive shall govern. Where the requirements of this Code conflict with the requirements of Title 28 Los Angeles County Plumbing Code, the Plumbing Code shall prevail.
Except as hereinafter changed or modified, the building standards contained in the Uniform Mechanical Code of the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials, which are published in the California Building Standards Code, are applicable to all occupancies and uses throughout the County of Los Angeles. Amendments to the building standards contained in the Uniform Mechanical Code, by state agencies, are applicable only to those occupancies or uses which the state agency making the amendment is authorized to regulate.
Purpose and Intent.
The purpose of this Code is to provide minimum standards to preserve the public health, safety and welfare by regulating the design, construction, installation, quality of materials, location, operation, and maintenance of heating, ventilating, cooling, refrigeration systems, and other miscellaneous heatproducing appliances. Consistent with this purpose, the provisions of this Code are intended and always have been intended to confer a benefit on the community as a whole and are not intended to establish a duty of care toward any particular person.
This Code shall not be construed to hold the County or any officer, employee or agent thereof responsible for any damage to persons or property by reason of any inspection authorized herein or by reason of the issuance or non-issuance of any permit authorized herein, and/or for any action or omission in connection with the application and/or enforcement of this Code. By adopting the provisions of this Code the County does not intend to impose on itself, its employees, or agents any mandatory duties of care toward persons and property within its jurisdiction so as to provide a basis of civil liability for damages.
This section is declaratory of existing law and is not to be construed as suggesting that such was not the purpose and intent of previous Code adoptions.
