Protecting the Public, Promoting Progress

The mission of the Department​ of Safety and Professional Services is to promote economic growth and stability while protecting the citizens of Wisconsin as designated by statute.​​

​​​​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. Visit the Customer Information page for​ instructions on first-time login​, and go to​ ​​to get started​.​​

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.

​SCAM ALERT: Neither the​ Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services nor regulating or licensing boards (e.g. State Board of Nursing) ​​will contact licensees by phone or fax requesting payment to clear or restore licenses. If you receive a call, email, fax or letter indicating that someone has stolen your license or that there are problems with your license that can be resolved with immediate payment, this could be a scam. Do not give out your personal,​ confidential information to someone claiming to be from a government agency or board.​​​
