well Virgil, no soap yet!
As a point of discussion,this is a good example of the NEC basically pushing it's wishes on other trades.
Once the code is made, it is somehow thought to be accepted practice by those trades.
However,the word usually gets out via us tradesmen in the trenches, myself i'm pro-ufer,etc..and try to convince who i can of being needed before the pour.
I have found no other mode of communication, and as yet have not seen any AHJ site 547-9 as a violation to the point of tearing up a pour ( now that would be something!)
I also must add, that 547-9 is somewhat biased to chickens here. I'm sure there's a chicken association or something that could chime in!
My hens should write an ROP!
