County Inspector Is Not Responsible for Removal of Equipment Covers

When performing inspections which require you to view equipment where the removal of any covers is 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 the 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.
