Abstract

This dataset displays a listing by discipline of all authorized third party inspection agencies in the District of Columbia. The mission of the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs is to protect the health, safety, economic interests, and quality of life of residents, businesses, and visitors in the District of Columbia by issuing licenses and permits, conducting inspections, enforcing building, housing, and safety codes, regulating land use and development, and providing consumer education and advocacy services. The Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) is responsible for the inspection and approval of all construction projects in the District of Columbia. DCRA, under certain conditions, authorizes non-governmental persons or entities, or a "Third Party Agency", to perform plan reviews and field inspections of work performed pursuant to a building permit and to certify that such work complies with the District of Columbia Construction Codes. A Third Party Agency may be a corporate entity or partnership, registered or qualified to do business in the District of Columbia, or a sole proprietor or individual who qualifies to perform Third Party Inspections by obtaining DCRA approval and meeting the ongoing requirements to maintain that approval pursuant to District of Columbia statutes and regulations. Additional information about the Third Party Inspection Program may be found on the DCRA website.
