The Department of Buildings performs an inspection when you are first issued a Place of Assembly Certificate of Operation. This Certificate does not expire. Before the end of the first year after the Certificate is issued, the Fire Department must perform an inspection. If your property passes inspection, the Fire Department will provide you with a Place of Assembly Permit. The Fire Department must inspect your establishment and renew the Place of Assembly Permit each year.
