Prince George's County inspectors perform residential and commercial inspections. The inspectors are well trained and some are former electricians with many years of experience.
Commercial Construction & Life Safety Section
The Commercial Construction and Life Safety Section provides commercial electrical inspections for commercial projects that are not third-party. This includes stores, offices, schools, restaurants, and places of worship, as well as home generators and solar electrical systems. Currently, inspectors are enforcing the 2014 National Fire Protection Association 70 National Electrical Code; however, work installed in full compliance with updated electrical codes is accepted. The County also enforces regulations outlined in the County Code, Subtitles 4, Building, and 9, Electrical, found on the Legislative/Zoning Information System.
NEW NOTICE: Non-Removal of Equipment Covers Beginning January 1, 2017, when performing inspections which require you to view equipment where the removal of any covers are necessary, the master electrician and/or his designee shall be present at the time of inspection to perform such task and re-secure the equipment once completed.
Prince George's County Inspectors are no longer responsible for the disassembling of any equipment in the performance of their duty.
Contractors should be on-site during an inspection, especially if your work involves a home generator or solar installation. A licensed journeyman is the minimally qualified person required to be on location for electrical inspections. To ensure compliance, please include the daytime phone number on which you can be reached on the day of the inspection. Inspections must be performed within six months of a permit issuance or fines may be assessed and/or the permit canceled. To schedule an inspection, please use the 200 series codes to schedule by phone or online.
