Yes, an inspector is required to open an electrical panel dead front during a four point inspection. According to the published standards of Citizens Insurance of Florida, an inspector must provide photos of both the front of the panel, with the door open, and “electrical box with the panel off.” Citizens is one of the largest Florida insurers and their four-point form is a standard one acceptable to other companies.
