Every commercial building  or tenancy is required to have an FCC permit from DPS. This allows us to ensure that the building is compliant with applicable codes and standards which provide for life safety and help prevent instances of fire and/or loss of life.

FCC permits now include all agency required permits and related inspections including, but not limited to, child care, group homes, and private education institutions. FCC permit holders will be notified by DPS to renew their permit on an annual basis. If any Operational permits are associated with the FCC permit, those must be renewed as well. To renew your existing FCC permit, or apply for a new one, please see the steps below. To find your FCC permit number, please return to the DPS homepage and use the Data Search feature to search by address.
