What is a Job Access Code (JAC)?

Your Job Access Code (JAC) allows you to access information about your permit application. You can use this number to check the status of an application and book inspections. Applicants can find their JAC after submitting a permit as part of the permit confirmation email. As the JAC is confidential, homeowners or consultants looking for a JAC should contact the permit applicant to request the JAC.
