A Fire Certificate of Occupancy (CO) is a document issued by the City of Saint Paul -DSI Fire Safety Inspection Division indicating the existing structure complies with all state and local safety codes allowing its use as a commercial building or residential occupancy. A Certificate of Occupancy is required prior to use of a building and must be re-issued regularly. 

This page contains the resources needed to obtain and maintain a Certificate of Occupancy for commercial buildings. We recommend owners or property managers go through the Pre-Inspection Checklist prior to a CO inspection.
