Miami Dade NOA Revision vs Renewal & Fees Explained

ex logo

As of January, 2021, here is an explanation from Miami Dade County’s Product Approval System (Product Control) on the differences, timeframes, and fees for their various applications:

 

Renewal: This extends the expiration date of the approval (for up to 5 years, contact Miami Dade for your specific time frame). A renewal does not include any changes to the drawing and only extends this expiration date. Miami-Dade’s fee for a renewal is $1,612.50 as of this writing.

 

Revision: This is for any changes to the approval drawing (building code updates, alternate substrates, etc.) For example, if we were to “revise” an approval for the 2020 FBC and add an alternate substrate we would need to submit this as a “revision” which also has a fee of $1,612.50. This revision fee does not include the extension (renewal) of the NOA expiration date. So if we were to submit only a revision the expiration date of an approval would remain at the current expiration date and Miami-Dade would require an additional $1,612.50 to extend the expiration date ($1,612.50 * 2 = $3225.00 if there were 2 approvals).

 

Hourly Review: This can be used for circumstances where an approval needs to be updated for the new code but there are absolutely no changes to the drawing (other than the 2017 FBC callout in the general notes). The fee for hourly review is $80.63/hr. This also does not include a renewal.
