Reconditioned Master Installation Certificate Inspection

A general certificate for inspections of lightning protection systems that have previously received an LPI-IP Master Certificate or equivalent, which has expired and where the square footage and/or the footprint of the structure has not changed since the last certification, for compliance with the standard specified during the application process. In the event that the square footage and/or footprint of the structure have changed, the structure is not eligible for an LPI-IP Reconditioned Master Certificate.
