“How to Respond to a Corrections Notice”
DPD has recently updated the “How to Respond to a DPD Correction Notice” document to help increase the quality of correction submittals. Along with a new, more streamlined look for easier reading, additional details are provided in a checklist format to assist applicants through a more efficient and successful correction submittal process.
The procedure for making corrections has not changed, however.
DPD Plans Routing and plan reviewers will begin checking correction submittals more closely now that this new document is in effect. They will expect that the instructions contained in “How to Respond to a DPD Correction Notice” have been followed, and there may be delays in permit issuance and penalty fees for incomplete or inadequate correction submittals.
Helpful Hint: Someone familiar with the project should bring in the corrected plans. At the time a correction submittal is made, Plans Routing staff may have questions pertaining to the documents that are provided. If a runner or messenger is sent to deliver the plans, they should be prepared to answer questions, or the project contact should provide a very clear correction response summary letter along with the corrected plans.
