One-Stop Shop for Construction Related Permits

Pursuant to Section 11 (b) of RA 11032 all cities and municipalities are enjoined to set up a One-stop Shop for Construction Permits (OSCP) preferably at the OBO that will provide frontline services to applicants relating to building permits, ancillary and accessory permits as well as certificates of occupancy application. Specifically, the OSCP receives applications, releases tax bills, receives payment and releases the permits. There are two types of OSCP – an electronic OSCP (henceforth referred to as “eCPermits”) which is an online portal that processes applications and a physical OSCP where applicants can visit to submit applications.
