All work for which a permit is issued requires at least one inspection and many projects require multiple inspections as determined by the scope of work performed. Construction must be inspected for compliance with City of Spokane, national and international codes in the area of electrical, mechanical, plumbing, boiler and refrigeration, fuel and gas. It is the responsibility of the permit applicant to request the appropriate inspections, including a final inspection, and to have the work remain accessible and exposed for inspection purposes until approved.

Guidelines for Inspection
