Waterproofing ... is the installation process of applying a vertical barrier of material(s), ranging from a roller grade liquid urethane sealant to sheet materials (much like vertical roofing); or, both ... to a subgrade wall (so as to prevent the lateral entry of water); incorporated with a drainage relief & conveyance system at the base of the wall so as to provide a means for the accumulated water at the base to drain away from the wall; thus, protecting the interior space from water impact.  Waterproofing is required when the interior space it to be occupied; or, fitted with wall covering materials that would deteriorate if subjected to water.

Dampproofing ... is similar in concept with waterproofing, yet it addresses non-occupied spaces (such as a crawlspace or a mechanical basement); and is only required by Code when the interior soils elevation is greater than 12" deeper than the exterior grade.  Typically, an application of petroleum based material is applied to the exterior wall; and a drainage relief & conveyance system is installed along the base.
