The ePermitting program is an internet program that allows contractors to apply for plumbing, mechanical and electrical permits, that do not require plan review, to be submitted and issued through the State Building Codes Division twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. After completion of the permit application and payment is made, the contractor receives an ‘Authorization to Begin Work’ form and receipt via email.

Please note: The City of West Linn Building Division may request additional information.

ePermitting requires that the contractor set up an account and then log into the system each time.  The contractor will only be allowed to purchase services for the type of license that they have associated with their account.  The ePermitting system retains the history of all authorizations purchased by a contractor.  There is also a help desk to assist contractors with their questions on the program. The number is 503-947-7374.
