The process is the same but the forms and fees differ depending on whether the project involves a one-, two- or three- family building (1-, 2-, 3- family and the 2019 Residential Code of Ohio) or a four or more family, commercial or industrial building ( all others and the 2017 Ohio Building Code) or if the project simply requires a Certificate of Compliance. If you have any questions, contact the Division of Building Regulation at (614) 431-2424.
