It was passed and is in effect of as now.
You actually need two license's
Philly Requires a Home Inspectors licence renewable every year in October The Fee is $300
Also Philadelphia requires a business Privilege licence to operate in Philadelphia.
They do check to make sure you have both. I have rentals and also a building business and was brought upon the carpet more than once regarding my licence. Fortunately I was legal and did have my documentation....the fact is that they do investigate and do not give you warnings....they usually send you a notice with a court date.... Pretty nasty.
The contact phone number for the licence is 215-686-2490
they will send you the paper work and fees. you must ask them for both license paper work "home inspector and business privilege". They are not astute enough to volunteer information.
Best of Luck
