Philadelphia’s building-related codes regulate the construction industry and set forth the legal responsibilities that come with property ownership.

L&I promotes Code compliance through education, consultation, responsiveness to public complaints, building plan reviews, licensing and permitting processes, on-site inspections, and enforcement actions. At all times, L&I’s focus is public safety.
