On May 12, SDCI launched a new feature in the Seattle Services Portal that allows applicants to renew their boiler, conveyance, and refrigeration permits 30 days before their 18-month issuance period expires. Prior to this new feature, our customers had to call or email SDCI staff to initiate a manual renewal process that could take multiple phone calls or emails to complete. Now, applicants can simply sign in to their portal account and renew their permit in a few clicks.
