Registered Third Party Agencies
Limited UCC Third Party Agency Services
Due to the temporary shortage of electrical inspectors, the City of Pittsburgh, Department of Permits, Licenses, and Inspections is requiring the following immediate procedures on new and existing electrical permits. These measures are temporary, and will be repealed or amended as necessary.
PLI currently utilizes approved Third Party Agencies (TPAs) for the following:
- Temporary inspection of Commercial and Residential Electrical Permits.
- Third party agency inspections will be required to complete any existing permits that were issued requiring TPA inspections.
