Minnesota Electronic Building Permits
Before any residential or commercial construction project in Minnesota is started, it is important that the proper documentation is submitted and approved to receive a building permit. The Department of Codes & Building Safety has launched the E-permits System, which is an interactive web application that allows residents and businesses to apply for city of Minnesota permits.
The Minnesota Department of Codes and Building Safety reviews all the documentation and sends an ePermit that offers permission to begin the construction project.
What Can the Minnesota E-Permits Service Offer?
- Make inspection requests
- Schedule inspections
- Check the status of inspections
- Pay re-inspection fees online with a credit card
- Apply for ‘trade permits’ (plumbing, electrical and mechanical permits), as well as some building permits

- Self-issue permits to themselves
Registered Contractors Using Minnesota’s ePermits System
Minnesota’s ePermits system allows registered contractors to apply for and self-issue many permits types, as well as allowing contractors to make applications for other permits that require Metro review prior to issuance.
ePermits can be used to pay for most permits online and to schedule and check the status of inspections and reviews related to most permits as well as renew licenses and registrations for contractors, too.
Who Needs Electronic Building Permits in Minnesota?
An ePermit in Minnesota is required for projects such as new construction, additions, remodeling or repairs to electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems.
The rules for online building permits require submission for:
Rules 1. All NEW projects, corrections and construction changes need to be submitted electronically.
- All project types qualify for electronic document submittal (Building, Discretionary, Engineering, Mapping, Construction Change, etc.)
Who Can Submit an Electronic Building Permit Application in Minnesota?
Any homeowner, architect or a licensed contractor can apply to the City of Minnesota for an ePermit by providing enough information to describe the project fully and clearly.
Construction drawings are necessary on most construction projects and especially for commercial projects, these must be prepared by an architect. For a home improvement project, the homeowner may prepare the drawings, provided that the drawings are accurate, legible and complete.
