When Do I need a Commercial Electrical Permit?

Commercial electrical permits are required for electrical work performed for all structures other than single or two-family dwellings. See this link for work not requiring a permit.

All commercial electrical work requiring a permit is to be completed by a City of Pittsburgh licensed electrician. Please see registration requirements to obtain a license.

How to Get a Commercial Electrical Permit

 Inspections for Commercial Electrical Permits must be performed by an Approved Third Party Agency.
