1.11 RECORD KEEPING REQUIREMENTS (WOOD COMPONENTS).
1.11.1 Background. Complete records on the replacement and pre-
servative in-place treatment of wood components are often either not kept
or are incomplete.
1.11.2 Discussion. Historical records maintained on wood com-
ponents within the CDAA arrays are invaluable in determining structural

for evaluating effectiveness of in-place maintenance procedures.
Records on in-house inspections can also provide significant and useful
information to CDAA inspection teams thereby enabling inspection efforts
to be more selective during the overall structural evaluation. Specific
information needed by the CDAA survey team includes:
