Plan Submittals


We now offer the option to submit plans electronically. Paper plans are still accepted. To submit electronically, the customer can supply the plan and application digitally via flash drive or email to EHSPlanReview@gmail.com. CD’s are not accepted. Digital copies must be in Adobe (PDF) format only. The plan itself must be submitted as one PDF file. Plans are not reviewed until payment is received. Payment is accepted via check, cashier’s check, or money order payable to the County of San Bernardino. Payments can be made in person or by mail. When mailing in your payment, please remember to attach a completed Plan Check Application.

Although this process is not mandatory, there are advantages to submitting plans electronically. It will save the customer on printing costs, and postage cost to mail the plans. It also is a convenience in that customers do not need to physically drop off and pick up plans.

Coming Soon


We are in the process of creating a system where operators can submit plans and pay fees via credit card through our online portal.
