eLMS: Application Types

Return to eLMS

These are all of the application types used in eLMS as well as their comparable codes in CDBS, LMS, IBFS and REC History Project.  LMS codes with a virgule ("/") indicate the purpose code/sub-purpose code.

Application types in BOLD are supported by eLMS and the applist_* tables.  Other application types will only show in the applist_* tables.

On many LMS/eLMS era type codes, if an "A" is appended to the end of the code (examples: L2CA, MODA, CPEA, etc.), this will indicate an amendment.  The exception is Legal STAs, which uses the code "STAM" (engineering STAs, once implemented into eLMS will use the code STAW for amendments).

On many LMS/eLMS era type codes, if a "W" is appended to the end of the code (examples: "MODW", "RENAW", etc.), this will indicate a withdrawal.  The exception is for original construction permits where the W comes before the code (WCP, WCPA, WCPE, WCPEA).
