Online Inspection Request
Welcome to the Inspection Request web application used by Baton Rouge City-Parish Department of Public Works Permits and Inspections division.

This web page is intended to help the citizen or contractor who has already received a permit for a project, and now needs to have a portion of that project inspected before moving on to the next phase.

Entering the data over the web is intended to be easier than making a phone call to request the inspection, and waiting on hold when the office is busy, and more reliable than just leaving a message.

After entering and submitting your information below and on the following page, you will be sent an email confirming that your request has been received. Upon processing the request, the DPW Inspection office will send you another email notifying you of the date of the scheduled inspection.

Regarding times: Inspection requests made before four p.m. will be scheduled for the following working day, or the same day, workload permitting. Requests made after four p.m. will be scheduled the following working day, workload permitting.

If requesting a partial inspection, you must note the specific type and location. Also, if pass codes, combinations, or security codes need to be entered at the inspection site by DPW personnel in order to get access, you must enter that information. Please refrain from indicating in the comment fields what time the inspectors should arrive, since we are unable to schedule specific times.

Thank you and we hope this helps improve your use of the Inspections process.


Please note that as of 10/10/2011 we have switched to a new software company for permitting and inspections. Any permits applied for on 10/10/2011 or after can be accessed through the Customer Portal on the MyPermitNow website.

Please use the existing method below for permits applied for prior to 10/10/2011.

To get started with requesting an inspection, enter your permit number below. Use the drop-down box to select the first letter of the permit number, (which is the type of permit) and then enter the number part. Then press the "Next" button.

You must use a B for Building permits, must use E for Electrical, use M for Mechanical, P for Plumbing, and O for Occupancy.
