Commercial Electrical

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. Currently, inspectors are enforcing the 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.

Non-Removal of Equipment Covers
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 Need to be On-Site for Inspections
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.
