Permit Applications

The following outlines the permitting process and the steps for permit approval, you will receive email notification every time your permit application status changes.

If your local jurisdiction has requested that DFPC perform the plan review and/or inspections for your project, you will need an Advanced Technical Services Agreement

If at any time you have difficulty or questions you can contact us by email at or call us at 303.239.4100.


1 – Create an account in RMS

This account will allow you to see all your permits and invoices in one place.

2 – Create a new permit application

Once you have successfully submitted your permit application the DFPC permit tech will then go in and send you a Box invite in order to upload your plans and other documents.

3 – Upload your documents and pay 50% of the estimated permit fees. Until this has been done your permit status is “Submission Incomplete”

We ask only 50% of the fees are paid in case there are adjustments during the review process so you do not end up overpaying. Once this step is done you will get an email stating “Submission Complete”.

4 – Submission Complete

Your application is completed and will now be placed in the Plan Review queue.

5 – In Plan Review

Your application has been assigned to a plan reviewer.  You will be contacted by your Plan Reviewer if any revisions need to be made with instructions on how to add them to your current permit.

6 – Plan Review Complete

Plan review complete will mean we are either awaiting AHJ review or awaiting payment. 

7 – Permit Issued

Your permit has been approved, payment has been made in full, approved drawings were emailed to the permit owner and the permit card was either emailed or ready to be picked up.

8 – Permit card Issuance

Due to a recent procedue change permit pickup is no longer available.


For Health, Fire or Life Safety permits you can request the permit be shipped to you. All school construction permits are emailed directly to the permit owner for printing.

9 – Inspections

Permit card and approved documents must be on site prior to any inspection taking place.  Once all are on site you may request inspections HERE


You will have the option to pay for your registration online* (check or credit card) or to mail in a check.  Permits will not be issued until payments have been made.

*The price to make a credit card payment to DFPC will be $0.75 plus 2.25% of the transaction amount.  The flat fee for an ACH (electronic check) is $1.00.

Since the transaction must be processed through the State’s official web portal, the payment is subject to portal pricing and under a contract administered under the authority of Colorado’s Statewide Internet Portal Authority as designated in statue CRS 24.37.7-101.
