Permits

Permits are required to manufacture, store, handle, use, seal or transport hazardous or combustible materials, or to conduct an operation or to maintain a facility in which a permit is required.  Permits required by the Fire Code need to be paid for before they are issued.  Issued permits need to be kept on the premises they are designated for at all time and available for inspection by an FDNY member.
