Learn what to do if your electrical permit expires, and how to extend it to avoid fees.

As the permit holder, you are responsible for ensuring your electrical permit remains active and does not expire, along with the compliance and safety of the installation performed under the permit.

It is highly recommended that you sign up for online permitting privileges. The Online Electrical Permit Portal provides the status and an indication of each permit's expiration date. Permits that are left to expire will be subject to the requirements of Surrey's Electrical Bylaw 15596 (10, 11, 12) and permit expiration fees, with no exceptions. If you do not have a copy of a "Final - Passed" inspection certificate, consider that permit not finalized and closed.

For further direction, the Expired Permits Guideline has been created to assist you in this process.
