Digital Submittal Program

                logo: e-plans (jpg (22 b)               
Digital Plan Review enables plan submittal, payment, and staff review/approval to all occur electronically - reducing (and potentially eliminating) trips to the One Stop Shop,  ensuring enhanced collaboration, resulting in plans being finalized as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Most digital submittals must be submitted as black & white .DWF files. Please refer to the requirements for your specific plan type below.

The Arizona Board of Technical Registration at 602-364-4930 governs the minimum requirements for professionals submitting and sealing plans (www.btr.state.az.us, see Rules: R4-30-304. Use of Seals).  If you do not have a digital signature you can still use this program for plan review.  Plan sheets must be imprinted with your seal and expiration date and the words "DRAFT" or "NOT FOR CONSTRUCTION" in lieu of a digital signature. When plans are ready for approval you'll be asked to bring in the seal and signed paper copies for final approval.

Scans to PDF and converted to DWF will not be accepted. Instructions on how to convert CAD drawing files to dwf are on the Autodesk.comwebsite. Capture all fonts when converting to dwf.
