Plan Review

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Electronic Safety and Licensing Application (eSLA) is now live for Gas Systems, Plumbing, POWTS​, and Swimming Pools. Customers must use eSLA to submit plan reviews/permits, as well as search the Public Lookup for these program areas.

Visit esla.wi.gov to get started, or go to the Customer Information page for instructions on first-time login.

The Division of Industry Services provides plan review for commercial buildings and structures in the state, as well as flammable and combustible liquid storage tank systems to ensure compliance with Wisconsin laws and regulations.

Questions regarding the Plan Review submittals and scheduling can be sent to DSPSSBPlanSchedule@Wi.gov.   

After reviewing the plans, the examiner will take one of three actions: 

  • "Conditionally Approved" means that the plans substantially conform to the codes, with any exceptions noted in the approval letter. Approval expires one to three years after the date of approval, depending on the type of project. Local considerations and permits are usually relevant to any project, even if Industry Services is doing the plan review.
  • "Withheld for Additional Information" means that the plans or calculations are missing significant information or that there appears to be conflicts with the codes that are serious enough that changes to the plans and / or calculations must be submitted to Industry Services.  Any revised information submitted must be signed and sealed by a Wisconsin-registered professional, if required for the original submittal. 
  • "Denied" means that there are serious conflicts with the codes that require the submittal of new plans if the project is to proceed.
