State launching public lookup tool for status of building plan submissions

The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services is introducing an improved public lookup tool for developers, builders, architects, property owners, or other interested parties to check the status of a plan submission, including any outstanding documents required to advance the plan for review. The new tool will launch the week of Jan. 16.

The new self-service tool will make submission dates and requirements available to interested parties so that they can independently monitor projects. Users will not need a login for eSLA, the submission system, but they will need the DIS (Division of Industry Services) number associated with the plan. Typically, the entity submitting a plan, often the architect, will receive the DIS number when they enter the plan into eSLA. Property owners, contractors, or others associated with the project should obtain the DIS number from the individual or entity responsible for submission with the department.
