Is a permit required to replace an electrical switch or outlet in Anne Arundel County, MD?

According to the Anne Arundel County Inspections and Permits website, a permit is NOT required to REPLACE an electrical outlet, or switch in your home. That being said, maybe the correct question to ask is SHOULD you replace the switch yourself?

Residential electricity is pretty dangerous. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you should always hire someone with the requisite skills, and licenses. Necessary to replace an outlet...NO, but maybe prudent.

Below is a table showing what permits, or plans are required when electrical work is conducted in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

Very timely post as I have some folks asking these questions.  Permit requirements in Martin County look to be very similar to yours.

Rich, Great information.  The Navy taught me a healthy fear of electric work.  My limit for the most part is replacing light fixtures from an already existing connection.  Beyond that, I'm bringing in a pro to do most anything that involves power.  Bill

It is a mystery to most people when you need a permit. Many contractors ignore the law and do the work. May be a contractor to avoid.

Rich isn't changing your own switches the same as playing with fire? At least in our house it would be! LOL!
