Any plumbers in here ? Have a question regarding nail plates on studs protecting sprinkler lines behind the wall.

It's not a project. My buddy was mounting a TV in his 5 year old condo and drilled through a sprinkler line, flooded 5 units. The line was installed 1/4 behind the stud at 5 feet high with no nail plate installed on the stud to stop penetration. My buddy is gonna go after the developer for no nail plates as it's common practice but I'm trying to find out if it's code or not.
You can ask for interpretations of the code: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/industry/construction-industry/building-codes-standards/bc-codes
That might be a place to get the answer.
