Notice of Contemporaneous Reviews for Electrical and Plumbing Licenses
This notice is the result of HB19-1086 (Plumbing) and 5B19-156 (Electrical). HB19-1086 becomes effective January 1, 2020. 5B19-156 becomes effective July 1, 2019.
Procedure for Contemporaneous Reviews of Electrical and Plumbing License and Apprenticeship Requirements
This standard procedure has been developed for conducting contemporaneous reviews to ensure consistent, timely and efficient enforcement of Colorado's electrical and plumbing licensure and apprenticeship requirements. Inspections of projects requiring an electrical or plumbing permit must include a contemporaneous review of electrical and plumbing licenses, when possible.
Contemporaneous reviews may include a full or partial review of the electricians, plumbers and apprentices working at a job site being inspected, at the discretion of the inspector, based on the inspector's familiarity with the installers or other relevant factors.
Inspectors may perform contemporaneous reviews at any time. Inspectors may conduct occasional, random, on-site inspections while actual plumbing or electrical work is being conducted, with a focus on large commercial and multi-family residential projects.
If a contemporaneous review reveals any non-compliance with Colorado's electrical and plumbing licensure or apprenticeship requirements, the inspector who performed the review shall promptly notify his or her immediate supervisor. Inspectors may file a complaint with the State electrical and plumbing boards for any violation of C.R.S. Title 12, Article 23 (Electricians) or C.R.S. Title 12, Article 58 (Plumbers).

You can always back up one step by pressing the pound (#) sign. If you make an error or enter a code that does not exist, you will get an error message. If you request an inspection type that the permit does not cover, you will hear the message, "The inspection that you entered cannot be found."
If the system is down, you will hear a message that either tells you the length of expected time it will be down or asks you to call the Building Department.
Once you become acquainted with the system, you can bypass most of the dialog by entering the desired number before the dialog finishes. You cannot bypass the speaking back of the permit number and the address.
