Certified Code Officials

As of Apr. 10, 2009, the only persons who may legally engage in any aspect of UCC enforcement are those who hold UCC certification in each category of work that they perform.
 
Clicking on “Certification List” below will direct you to a list of persons that the Department has approved as certified code officials. This list is updated daily.
 
CERTIFIED CODE OFFICIALS: Your certification card expires three years after the date it was issued. Please check the expiration date on the front of your card and submit your renewal application before your card expires. Note: if you fail to renew your certification within one year of the expiration date, you will have to re-test in order to be re-certified.
