Inspection Ready provides online scheduling for virtually all inspections, making it easier to schedule inspection appointments, offer more precise inspection scheduling and improve inspection tracking and notifications. Plus, it improves our service by standardizing our Inspectors' electronic checklists – and allowing industry members to certify certain objections electronically, eliminating the cost of re-inspections.
In accordance with the technology enhancements outlined in our Building One City Plan, the Department launched Inspection Ready, our new online inspection request and routing system, on December 7, 2015. In order to request inspections, you are required to register for an account.
Licensed professionals and owners are now required to use Inspection Ready to request development inspections in the following areas:
Inspection requests are no longer accepted in person, by phone or by the old online request portals on the Department's website. All requests must be made in Inspection Ready.
Anyone who wants to may register, however, Licensees, Registered Architects, and Professional Engineers MUST register in order to take action in the system and request inspections.
