Programs & Services

Minor label program
The Minor Label Program is an alternative inspection program established by the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS). The program utilizes minor installation labels and random inspections instead of regular electrical and plumbing permits for certain types of minor electrical and plumbing work.

This program is adminstered in the Portland metro are through the state Building Codes Division. For more information about this program, contact the Building Codes Division at 503-378-4133, or visit them at

Code Evaluation Inspections
In certain circumstances, a code evaluation inspection may be paid for and requested. We provide structural, electrical, plumbing and mechanical code evaluation inspections. By authorizing a code evaluation inspection, the applicant agrees to bring up to code everything that is found to be in violation of current code, once the inspection has occurred. Please call (503) 823-7388 to determine if this is an appropriate inspection for your situation.
