Certificate of                      BID requires a Certificate of Occupancy (C/O) for new buildings, the first tenant into a
Occupancy:                          new building or space, additions over 1,000 sq. ft., and changes of occupancy. The
                                    requirement for the C/O is noted on the #1C Permit from BID. Prior to PW Wastewater
                                    signing the C/O card, the following conditions must be met:
                                    •    Contractor may not be on either (ROW or WMD) delinquent list.
                                    •    All “Conditions” on the shell/superstructure SUDP must have been met.
                                    •    All referenced PWPO permit numbers must be completed and finalized.

                                    C/O, then a final C/O will not be granted for the Plan Approval Certificate. The
                                    shell/superstructure must have been granted a C/O prior to the Plan Approval
                                    Certificate receiving a C/O. A Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) may be
                                    C/O and TCO for Plan Approval Certificates may be signed in the office. You must
                                    bring in the Plan Approval Certificate number and TCO or C/O card with you. If you
                                    wish to have the C/O card signed in the field, the inspection request with the Plan

                               individual. Whoever submits the plans is considered the “Authorized Agent”.
                               PW DES does not require stamped plans, but the plans must not be marked for
                               anything other than for construction. If a Plan Approval Certificate is issued PWPO will
                               not retain a copy of the plans.
                               PWPO will deem whether a Plan Review Certificate can be issued, or if the submittal
                               must be logged-in for full review. PWPO reserves the right to disallow the issuance of a
                               Plan Review Certificate for any submittal that does not meet required qualifications.
                               There are no fees assessed for Plan Review Certificates as of the date of this
