The County of Hawai’i’s Electronic Processing & Inspection Center opened to the public on July 28. This new system allows users to enter applications for new permits online, track and manage applications, and pay permit fees. EPIC improves transparency and streamlines the application and approval process, allowing multiple approving agencies to review plans concurrently. In addition, once a building permit is issued, contractors can request inspections and view the results of the inspections online. Register for a user account to apply for a plan or permit application and track its progress. Before submitting an application please review the Electronic Review Plan.
Training videos on the system can be found in the HELP section on the Application Assistant (tylerhost.net) website.
REALTORS® are encouraged to reach out to the homeowners to obtain the official stamped permit when purchasing a house.
