A permit is required for Electrical work on an existing building or structure. Prior to starting any activities, you will be required to submit plans and any necessary supporting documentation for review and approval by the County. The plan review process involves verifying compliance with the California Building Codes, San Bernardino County Fire Code, Environmental Health, San Bernardino County Development Code, and/or any required laws and regulations.

Prior to inspection of a new electrical panel, approval from the local utility company, related to the location of the new panel is required.
