An online inspection data entry portal is now available for qualified Onsite Sewage Treatment and Disposal System private provider inspectors. This portal is a web-based system allowing private provider inspectors to enter inspection form data, attach inspection documents and transfer this information to the Department of Health’s data system. County Health Department staff will receive a notification of a submitted inspection for a construction permit in their county. They will then review and approve or disapprove submitted information.
Private Provider Inspections legislation in Senate Bill 856 passed the Florida Legislature, was signed by Governor DeSantis on May 12, 2022 as Chapter 2022-105, Laws of Florida and is effective July 1, 2022. Amendments to the rule define authority for private provider inspectors to inspect an OSTDS when qualified as a private provider and upon written authorization by the owner of the system.
