All commercial construction projects having a cost of $50,000.00 or more must be registered with the TDLR.

For a plan review to occur all construction drawings and forms should be uploaded to TABS in PDF format. Only PDF format is accepted by the state. Note: FedEx Office (formerly Kinko's), and other businesses offer large format scanning services.

Note: Where there is not a design professional with overall responsibility for the design of the project, the Owner (holding title to the property) is required to register the project with TABS and submit the construction drawings.

Upload the following to TABS, or you may email us or send a direct download link to

(1) One complete set of the construction drawings in PDF format, and

(2) A fully completed TDLR Proof of Submission Form in PDF format signed and dated by the design professional having overall responsibility of the design of the project, and

Note: If there is no such design professional the Proof of Submission Form is not required.

(3) Pay the plan review fee. Payment may be by credit card (preferred), check, or money order, payable to 'Texas Access' for the Plan Review Fee in the Fee Schedule. See the Fee Schedule & Payment page for the fees.

Use the total construction cost to determine the appropriate fees in the fee schedule. The final inspection fee may be included with the review fee at the time of submittal. If paying by check, temporary checks are not acceptable and will be returned to the person making the submittal, thus delaying the project.

Note: The submittal is not considered complete until ALL of the above items have been processed or received. The Rules require payment prior to the performance of any service.
