Find out the business licence inspection process and requirements. 

All business licence inspection requests must be made directly through Business Licensing. A Business Licence Inspection Request form can be requested via e-mail at businesslicensing@surrey.ca. Applications are forwarded on your behalf to the Building, Electrical, and Plumbing Inspection sections. The results of the inspections are automatically forwarded to Business Licensing.

If there are any active permits on file for the location you have applied for, then all permits will be required to have final approval before approval can be granted for the business license. This includes permits that were applied for when the previous tenant(s) occupied the building.

Please note for Building Permits that have Electrical and/or Plumbing requirements these permits must receive final approval prior to the Final Approval of the Building Permits.
