What Replaced the DCRA?



A few months ago the DCRA was replaced by the DC Department of Buildings and the DC Department of Licenses and Consumer Protection. The DC Department of Buildings and the DC Department of Licenses and Consumer Protection are two separate agencies within the government of Washington D.C. that have different responsibilities.


The DC Department of Buildings is responsible for regulating the construction, alteration, and maintenance of buildings in the city. This includes issuing permits for building projects, inspecting construction sites, and enforcing building codes and safety regulations. The department also provides information and resources for homeowners, builders, and developers.


The DC Department of Licenses and Consumer Protection, on the other hand, is responsible for regulating businesses and protecting consumers in the city. This includes issuing licenses and permits for various types of businesses, enforcing consumer protection laws, and investigating complaints against businesses. The department also provides information and resources for consumers and businesses.


In summary, the DC Department of Buildings is responsible for regulating the construction and maintenance of buildings in the city, while the DC Department of Licenses and Consumer Protection is responsible for regulating businesses and protecting consumers. Both agencies play important roles in ensuring the safety and well-being of the people and businesses in Washington D.C.
