BCI joist holes

I am inspecting a new home construction and the contractors have drilled holes everywhere in these BCI joists, some are right next to the flange.

What do I say about these??? The pictures on the chart don’t seem to cover holes this big?

You record the model and size of the joist, measure the size and location of the holes, then look them up in the penetrations table in the appropriate BCI installation standard. If they don’t conform you say so and cite the non-conformity.
