About the Bureau of Construction Codes

The dedicated staff of the Bureau of Construction Codes (BCC) work as a team to assure that the built environment and the systems within are sound, safe and sanitary; building users' health, safety and welfare are protected; and that, through a coordinated program of code compliance, investigation and training, there is consistent application of standards.

About   Contact Us

The Bureau of Construction Codes (BCC) has updated seven (7) construction application forms (building permit, electrical permit, mechanical permit, plumbing permit, plan examination, school project plan examination, and premanufactured unit) which the State Construction Code Commission (SCCC) prescribed. The updated versions of these forms are available at: permits and plan reviews. Please note that BCC will not accept previous versions of these forms.


As a reminder for other units of government, the SCCC also prescribed plan review application forms and permit application forms that are substantially similar to the updated BCC forms. This may allow county and local (city, township, village) units of government to continue utilizing their forms if they are substantially similar to the updated BCC forms. BCC encourages local units of government to ensure their forms contain language and seek information required under state law, in substantial conformity with the updated BCC forms prescribed by the SCCC. Any units of government that use electronic versions of their forms through an on-line plan review and permitting system should maintain consistency for all their application form formats.
