A Master permit incorporates multiple permits and reduces the submittal requirements for multiple sets of construction plans.
A person, partnership or corporation listed as a contractor under section 875-106 may elect to obtain a master permit for all construction occurring at a structure. (However, the Department of Code Enforcement is not obligated to start issuing master permits until computer equipment and programs needed to make issuance of such permits practicable and effective have been secured.) The master permit shall identify all construction to occur at the structure and shall be the sole permit needed to accomplish all work identified on the permit at the structure. The person, partnership or corporation obtaining the master permit shall be responsible for all construction occurring at the structure, including code compliance for all construction for which Articles II, III or IV of Chapter 875 of this Revised Code require licensure or IC 25-28.5-1 requires a state license.
(G.O. 160, 1994, § 1; G.O. 1, 2002, § 1)
In order to obtain a master permit, the person, partnership or corporation must either be licensed for all the types of construction that will occur at the structure or identify, at the time of application, a licensed subcontractor for every type of construction that will occur at the structure.
The fee for the master permit shall be the sum of the fees (calculated according to sections 536-604, 536-605, 536-505, 536-607) for the structural and craft work for which the master permit is issued.
