BIPP Permits (JCPs and ERPs)

How to Search for a Permit

This map provides an in-depth search of the department-issued permits, verified exemptions, and pending permits using the department's GIS application. First, zoom to the area of interest on the map or search by one of the following: street address, project name, permit number (numbers only, no dashes) or the Department's Range Monument.

As you zoom into the location, the map will show icons at all locations associated with the BIPP permitting data records. Click on an icon to obtain more information on that project. A pop-up window will open on the screen with permitting and project information. Clicking on View in the pop-up window will redirect to our online document management system and the electronic records for the selected site.


Additionally, files can be also be located on OCULUS or NEXUS, the Department's document storage system.  For instructions on how to use these tools click here.

Receive Notifications of Future Applications for Permits

Create a subscription to the department’s Permit Application Subscription Service (PASS) system. This free service enables visitors to customize notification preferences, including selecting multiple application types (JC, JM, JN, BC, BI, BM, BN, BMA, BE) and defining geographic area of interest (by county, or within a defined radius from a point selected). The PASS system will automatically send an email notification whenever the department receives a permit application that meets the subscription criteria. The email will specify the type of authorization being applied for and provide the application tracking number. Obtain updates on any application under review currently by contacting the appropriate Permit Manager.
