BUILDING CERTIFICATIONS

Meeting Building Recertification Requirements in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties

Miami-Dade and Broward Counties have implemented recertification inspection programs, each requiring Electrical and Structural assessment. The inspections are not designed to determine compliance with current Building Codes.  They are to ensure the safety of buildings for continued occupancy.  

The Building Official shall provide the owner of the building with an advanced “Notice of Required Inspection”; however this does not replace the building owner’s responsibility to timely recertify a building or structure.

Miami-Dade County:

  • Buildings of three stories or taller constructed between 1983 and 1997 within three miles of the coastline must complete inspections by December 31st, 2024.

  • Other buildings constructed between 1983 and 1992 must also complete inspections by December 31st, 2024.

  • Buildings constructed on or before 1982 that have already undergone Miami-Dade’s 40-year program will follow an established schedule.

Broward County:

  • Buildings that are 25 years or older from the date of Certificate of Occupancy must undergo recertification inspections, with subsequent inspections required every 10 years.

  • Threshold Building Recertifications must be signed off by a Florida Licensed Professional specializing in Structural Engineering and licensed as a Special Inspector.
