Information on the Building Codes Applicable to a Specific Commercial Project

Information on what codes are adopted and the amendments to the Codes (Executive Regulations) can be found on the DPS website under Codes and Regulations, then Click on Building Codes and Standards. Click on the ER link for the amendments.

Each day a Commercial Building Plan Reviewer is available to answer questions about the building code applicable to construction projects. Walk-in visits are accepted in the Department of Permitting Services offices at 255 Rockville Pike, 2nd Floor, Rockville, MD 20850 between the hours of 7:30 AM and 4:00 PM Monday through Friday.

A more formal meeting called a 'Pre-Design' consultation, may be scheduled with Customer Service to answer a wide range of questions about a project and how DPS will handle the review. Pre-Design meetings are very important in understanding all requirements for submittal of plans to DPS.
