The inspection types assigned to a 999 number can be scheduled at any time during the project.

Select the appropriate inspection type from the list of available inspections. Excluding weekends and holidays the available inspection dates may be up to five workdays out. The access number can be found on the front page of the building or trade permit and it is the same number used to schedule inspections though the Automated Phone Line System.
Master Account: Creating a Master Account enables you to see only your permits; it is not a requirement to use the on-line system. To create a Master Account the telephone number entered on-line must match the telephone number in the Building Permits database. To verify the number on file please contact the Permit Staff at (405) 366-5339.
What if I cannot access the on-line inspections page from my computer? In some cases users must increase the security settings on their browser in order to use the site. Here are some screen shots showing how to increase the security settings on your browser.
What if I received an "error" message after entering my access number? Generally this means the trade contractor license is expired and the on-line system will not allow you to proceed with an inspection request until the license is updated and activated. Please call (405) 366-5415.
Can someone else request an inspection on my permit? No. Not unless you give them your access number to do so. An access number is issued with each permit and it is provided to the permit holder, the access number is required to request or cancel the inspection. The General Contractor can view the Inspection Status Menu seeing the results of the inspections previously made although they cannot request or change the inspection.
