Another Case is here (Wrol Up Case #: DCA04-DEC-051 )
The local jurisdiction in only authorized to obtain proof of state product approval for products that have obtained statewide approval consistent with the limitations of use and installation instructions identified by the state approval.

PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER: That for Florida we recommend you print or screen capture the main screen for the product approvals when turning in your copies for permit so the building departments know where it came from.
