When Certifying An Existing Installation, Are You Saying It Works Or That It Is According To Code?

A bit OT, but also has to do a bit with IPVM topics. When someone inspects a fire panel and fills out the form, are they certifying that everything is according to code, or are they saying what is here works. The difference being if someone is inspecting someone elses work from a few years ago, that as of now has been approved every year. Are you taking responsibility of it being according to code?

Thanks
