The Self-Certification program simplifies the building permit review process for eligible projects where the licensed architect or structural engineer of record takes full responsibility for code compliance. Plan reviews are eliminated by allowing the Processional of Record to certify that the project complies with the Chicago Building Code.
The Self-Certification document below includes information and highlights of the program as well as Project Submittal Procedures and Eligibility requirements. In addition, when classes are scheduled to enroll in this program, one can download the application for the class below. Check the Department of Buildings website for class dates and times.
