Electronic Plan Review (EPR)
What is EPR?
EPR is an electronic plan review service provided by RLD/CID. This new service is intended to save both time and money during the construction document review and permitting process. This will alleviate the cost of multiple printings of the plans and to allow CID plan reviews to respond electronically to submittals, reducing paper waste. (no building permit is issued at this time, this is only a plan review. building permits will only be issued at the time of full payment and/or with proof of a awarded contractor providing a copy of the signed contract)
How do I Submit?

What Happens Next?
- Once CID staff has received the request and plans have been tracked the submitter will be emailed with a CID tracking number for the project and the estimated fee that are due with instructions for payment submittal.

- If plans are rejected or placed on hold, the submitter and/or design professional will be contacted by phone and/or email by plan review requesting revisions be made with an expiration date of two weeks. After two weeks plans will be rejected, returned and requested to be resent.
- Resubmittal of rejections shall go thought the submittal for EPR procedures and sent through https://send.rld.state.nm.us or emailed to email@example.com (Plans shall not sent or submitted directly to any CID staff or plan reviewer at any time THIS WILL DELAY THE PROCESS.)
- Approved plans will be emailed to the submitter in a PDF format with comments and markups once payment is received.
- One set of approved plans must be printing and remain on the jobsite for inspection review.
