New Fees

Effective January 15th, 2023, the Nevada State Fire Marshal Division will implement a newly legislative approved fee schedule for Certificates of Compliance, inspections, and plan review. The fee increase was approved by the Nevada State Legislature on December 28th, 2022. The fee increase is in response to a new budget format in which the State Fire Marshal has switched to a fee-based budget versus funding from the general budget. Also, the increase was necessary to cover cost of service expenses which had not been modified since 1997. A copy of LCB File no. R183-22 is provided on the link below and outlines the new fees assigned to Nevada Administrative Code 477.  A completed version of Nevada Administrative Code 477, will be posted on the State Fire Marshal website once a certified copy is forwarded back to the Nevada State Fire Marshal by our Legislative Council
