All Electrical Permit Applications should include a copy of your license, a copy of your insurance, and the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Affidavit. All Plumbing & Gas Fitting Applications should include a copy of your license and the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Affidavit. There is a checklist at the end of the Building Permit Application which lists what should be included.

The State Building Code provides that the Building Department shall review a building permit application within thirty (30) days after filing. For purposes of this section, the permit is not considered to have been filed until other departments have approved it and it is returned to the Building Department for zoning and building code review. Work under (a permit) in the opinion of the Building Commissioner or Inspector of Buildings must proceed in good faith continuously to completion so far as is reasonably practicable under the circumstances. If you submitted plans along with your permit application, a copy of these plans, bearing an “approved” stamp was returned to you with the approved building card. This copy must be available for the inspector to review for determination that the work is in compliance with the approved plans.
As of December 2018 there is a new application for the installation of a Generator which should be submitted along with the Electrical and/or Gas Permit Application.
