Oddly enough, New York City has been allowing "self certification" for quite a while now for many (if not all) types of work.

Here on Long Island there are a number of Agencies an EC can choose from to perform Electrical Inspections. We have no Town Electrical Inspectors. The Town Inspectors oversee all other aspects of Building, but not Electrical-related.

You refering to "3rd Party" agencies like BIU or Garden State???

Here, we (EC) do not have a choice. THe towns either have an employee, or a contract with a 3rd party agency.

You have an opinion on making a choice??
