Welcome to the Bureau of Construction Codes

  • Welcome to BCC

    The dedicated staff of the Bureau of Construction Codes (BCC) work as a team to assure that the built environment and the systems within are sound, safe and sanitary; building users' health, safety and welfare are protected; and that, through a coordinated program of code compliance, investigation and training, there is consistent application of standards.  Full Description


    In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Bureau of Construction Codes (BCC), is transitioning to new processes and procedures to continue to serve the public and industry stakeholders in a manner that implements social distancing.

    Our objective is to not disrupt the services and support that you receive from the BCC Team. As such, we ask for your understanding during this state of emergency and provide your questions and requests to BCC by email at: bccpermits@michigan.gov, and we will respond as quickly as possible. If you would like a return phone call, please provide the best time and number for a team member to connect with you.

    You can also contact us at 517-241-9302.

    Also we strongly encourage you conduct business with us online at: https://aca3.accela.com/LARA/Default.aspx instead of by U.S. Mail.

    For disciplinary matters, submit documentation or make inquiries related to disciplinary actions to: LARA-BCC-Compliance@michigan.gov.

    Information about this pandemic is changing rapidly. You can stay informed by regularly visiting www.Michigan.gov/Coronavirus and www.CDC.gov/Coronavirus.



    PSI examination sites have closed until further notice. Therefore, the Bureau of Construction Codes (BCC) is working on a process for granting extensions to applicants whose application will expire during this emergency closure.

    In the meantime, please request an extension by emailing LARA-BCC-Licensing@michigan.gov with your Application/Candidate ID Number. Once the bureau has finalized the process, you will receive emailed confirmation granting your extension.

    As granting extensions will be dependent on when testing facilities reopen, the bureau asks for your patience as it develops this process.


    Due to the recent spread of COVID-19, all meetings and Proposed Rule/Code Change Request forms are postponed. The bureau will schedule/reschedule dates when it is safe to proceed. Email notification will be sent at that time. Information regarding this outbreak is changing rapidly, and we appreciate your understanding and assistance in helping to prevent the spread of this virus.
