In terms of the National Building Regulations (NBR), the owner is responsible for his roof structure, regardless of the type of building (house, office, hospital, etc). In fact, the rule is that where a rational design is used, a professional competent person must be appointed by the owner to carry out that design. The roof inspection is an important part of the design process, and therefore the engineer (or his qualified appointee) must inspect the completed roof.
