Self-Certification Program

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Self-Certification Program eliminates plan review by allowing a registered professional to take responsibility for and certify a project's compliance with building code, standards and ordinances. Depending on the scope of the project, permits can be issued within one to five calendar days. The expanded program includes most buildings over 25,000 square feet; inventory, salvage, landscape and parking lot plans by landscape architects; and grading and drainage and parking lot plans by civil engineers.
