On a single pipe, you need 18" of clearances, and 9" on double pipe.

Everything I needed to install my woodstove came in the installation instructions for the woodstove or the chimney.

Here is one chimney manufacturer's website with tons of instructions on their products...

And the building inspector basically checked that I installed everything to the manufacturer's specifications (stove and chimney).

Then when my insurance company came out to inspect, they basically wanted to see that I passed the building inspection, then took pictures of the woodstove and made a few measurements to the wall and of hearth in front of the stove. Then they added the woodstove to be covered by my homeowner's insurance.
