25 Year or Older Building Safety Program

The Broward County Board of Rules and Appeals (BORA) adopted new regulations for Building Inspections (formerly known as the 40-Year Inspection Program).    Per BORA, the Program was revised to be consistent with the requirements of Florida law, F.S.553.899. The major change to the program is that buildings will now be required to have that initial inspection at 25 years of age instead of 40.

The 25 year recertification process plays a critical role in ensuring that buildings remain safe for their occupants and the public. The 25 year recertification process is a mandatory assessment that all buildings must undergo to ensure compliance with local building codes and regulations.
