HAZMAT Operational Permit for Certain Facilities Located in Harris County

Harris County requires that an operational permit for certain facilities is obtained prior to beginning operations for which a permit is required. The permits ensure that the County has necessary information to safeguard the county from the risks associated with high hazard occupancy. These permits are issued for operations set forth in Sections 105.6.1 through 105.6.50 of the Harris County Fire Code. Harris County issued a new Hazardous Material (HAZMAT) operating permit, effective January 1, 2020. All new and existing facilities located in Harris County will be required to apply for a HAZMAT permit if they store, transport on-site, dispense or handle hazardous materials in quantities greater than those listed in Table 105.6.20. These permits are required to be renewed annually. If you have any questions, or need further information please contact Vidhi Singhal at (281) 501‑6100 or vidhi@esepartners.com. #HAZMAT #compliance #ESEpartners
