The inspector is correct on using the TY in that position.

The code you referenced is in regards to the trap itself. The trap itself that is pictured meets code, although a union trap would be preferredpootza wrote: ↑ The inspector is correct on using the TY in that position.
Regarding the trap:
(3) Except for a floor-mounted service sink, every trap that serves a lavatory, a sink or a laundry tray shall,
(a) be provided with a cleanout plug of a minimum ¾ in. size located at the lowest point of the trap and of the same material as the trap, except that a cast iron trap shall be provided with a brass cleanout plug,
(b) be designed so that the trap dip can be completely removed for cleaning purposes, or
(c) be provided with a cleanout installed above the floor as close as practical downstream of the trap when the trap is,
(i) installed below the floor, and
(ii) not readily accessible for cleaning as required by Clause (a).
