Do you need an electrical inspection?

This question comes up many times. The fact of the matter is that since the 1950s Minnesota law has required and enforced electrical inspections statewide. Many people don’t realize this until they go to sell or refinance their property. Generally, Minnesota law requires all electrical work to be performed by licensed, bonded and insured electrical contractors and their employees.

Homeowners, with strict limitations, are exempt from licensing, but not from inspection. A separate request for electrical inspection form with the required fees must be submitted to the Department of Labor & Industry at or before the start of any electrical installation. Please furnish our office with a copy as well.

If you have had electrical circuits added, extended or altered, you should also have your local inspector stop by. To find out more about requirements for electrical inspections, how to file a request for electrical inspection, or to find your local inspector, visit www.dli.mn.gov.
