Permitting & Registration
Producer & Processor Requirements
The main requirements for your facility include our permitting program and our registration program.
The permitting program, referred to as a Notice of Construction (NOC), is a pre-construction application and review process that, when approved, results in a permit for your business with site specific conditions. NOC application decisions are made on case-by-case basis, based on the specifics of the application and the emission control technology options.
A $1,150 filling fee is required with your NOC application. Additional processing fees are due after review of the permit application and based on the information in your application and the specifics of your facility and equipment.
The registration program includes onsite inspections, compliance reviews, and annual fees. The inspections include review of compliance with specific permit conditions, along with general agency regulations that apply to all sources. To keep your permit in effect, you must maintain an active registration. Any lapses in registration invalidate your business' permit and ability to operate.
To complete the permit application, you will need the following information.
- Applicant and owner or company information
- Expected annual yield in pounds (flowers/buds, leaves)
- Facility type and purpose (recreational, medical, grower, processor)
