The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs’ (DCA) has launched ePlans, a new web-based electronic plan review system, which eliminates paper-based building and code review processes and reduces the amount of time between plan submission and final approval.
We invite you to attend an informational webinar to learn more about ePlans and how you can benefit from using the new system. The webinar is being offered from 10-11 a.m. on December 10, 2015.
ePlans provides a number of benefits and cost-saving measures for both the building community and the Department including:
- 24-hour access to the system from any computer
- Elimination of the need for paper plans to be manually printed and delivered
- Reduced printing costs
- Transparency and auditability
- Reduced turn-around time to review plans
ePlans will be extended to all State building projects that require plans from a licensed architect or engineer. The Department will require mandatory usage of the ePlans system by December 31, 2015. When a citizen (architect, engineer, contractor, owner) submits an application for a construction or land use permit requiring drawing plans and other documents, the Bureau of Construction Project Review will use ePlans to complete the initial review. Required changes are noted on the files and then communicated to the applicant, who can re-submit corrected plans electronically, 24/7, from the convenience of any computer. The review cycle continues until all the regulatory requirements are satisfied and the DCA grants approval for the plans.
