Electrical Service Inspection

Question:Electrical Service

  • Is a service inspection….(Inspection code #120/111) required or is that included in a cover inspection (inspection code #105) or a final inspection (inspection code  #199)?


  • Customers should request all inspections relevant to their project. If the project involves a service change, panel change or added sub panel, an inspection (#120/111/145) should be requested. This provides a record of requested inspections and approvals for all aspects of the electrical installation that has taken place. If only a cover inspection and a final inspection is approved there would be no record of a service/ sub panel approval unless a 120/111/145 inspection was requested and /or approved.
