A refrigeration permit is required whenever remote refrigerant lines are installed. The applicant must supply the following information:
- Work site address
- Applicant information
- Description of installation
- Work site owner/tenant information
- Installer information including the City of Seattle refrigeration/contractor license number
- Hp rating of each compressor and number of units
Many of the permits for refrigeration systems are available at the Over-the-Counter area of DPD's Applicant Service Center (location & hours). The Refrigeration Permit Application is available online on our Over-the-Counter forms website. Find more information in CAM 104, Getting an OTC Permit.
The professional who applies for the refrigeration permit must have a City of Seattle Refrigeration Contractor's license. Please see more information about that licensing on our Trade Licensing website.
Depending upon the equipment being installed, a separate Mechanical Permit may be required. Please see CAM 415, Applicant Responsibilities and Plan Requirements for Mechanical Permits, for specific requirements.
