Online Services Upgrades
In an effort to better serve you, the Department of Safety and Professional Services is moving the Commercial Building and Elevator programs to our upgraded online system, the Electronic Safety and Licensing Application known as eSLA. eSLA will allow you to complete all of your applications, submissions, renewals, and payments related to your credential, permit, or plan review online.
All of these functions will be available through eSLA beginning on April 12, 2021, at 8:00 am. Existing account information will migrate to eSLA, but
all customers must complete registration on
eSLA in order to link existing information from the old system to the customer's eSLA account. New customers will need to create an account before submitting plans. The
eSLA Customer Portal Log In video provides a quick walkthrough of the process.
To help you prepare for the transition, we offered a live,
eSLA training webinar on Friday, April 2, 2021. Thank you to those who were able to attend! The
eSLA Webinar & Demo was recorded and is available on demand, along with the
webinar slides presented during the webinar. Our office is in the process of responding to the questions raised at the webinar and we encourage all customers to view the presentation.
Important News About Your Scheduled Plan Review
We learned that the expected review date for submitted projects was blank and have worked with our vendor to correct this eSLA software issue. All pending plan submissions that were complete, including payment, have received a date. All new submissions will receive a date within 72 hours of submission. For more information, please see
the May 7, 2021 message from Branden Piper, Administrator of DSPS Division of Industry Services. Thank you for your patience as we fine-tune the new system.
