Electrical Inspection Areas

Surrey is divided into three inspection areas: North, Central & South. Each area has designated Electrical Safety Officers. To speak to the area Electrical Safey Officer, or to review the daily inspection schedule line, please call 604-591-4650.

Surrey's Safety Officers are available for consultation at City Hall weekday mornings from 8:30am to 9:15am. Due to the high volume of inspections, the Electrical Safety Officers will no longer be returning to the office at the end of each work day.

Please note as of September 2017, new inspection areas have been put in place. Refer to the Inspection Area Map.

Electrical Inspection Requests

Inspection requests must be emailed to before 3pm during normal business days for inspections to be scheduled.

Remember to call the daily inspection schedule line at 604-591-4650 on the morning of your inspection to confirm your request has been scheduled or deffered.

Requests for copies of electrical permits or for the results of an electrical inspection older than two months will be subject to a reasearch fee. See the Online Building Record Search for more details.
