Special Inspections

Special inspector registrations will be required for all individuals performing inspections to be in compliance with Chapter 17 of the International Building Code.

Visit the SC Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation at www.llr.state.sc.us to register as a Special Inspector.

Certificate of Occupancy or Final Inspection

After passing all inspections and submitting any requested final paperwork, you will receive a Certificate of Occupancy for new construction or a 'Final' for other construction.

Keep in mind that a structure cannot be occupied until a Certificate of Occupancy is issued for a new structure.
