Permitting and Regulation Requirements for Industrial Businesses

  1. 1. INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES & RESOURCES FOR SAN DIEGO MANUFACTURERS Permitting & Regulation Requirements for Industrial Businesses Presented By: LINDA GREENBERG Lee & Associates
  2. 2. INTERNATIONAL CLIENT’S EXPECTATIONS FOR SUPPLIERS  Timely delivery of products to the client’s specifications.  Code compliant facility ready to commence production.  Operational flexibility to respond to changes in products and specifications.  Well trained, dependable labor force.
  3. 3. BUSINESS LICENSE REQUIREMENTS  All businesses are required to have a business license, or in the City of San Diego a business tax certificate, to lawfully operate. Your business license has to specifically describe your business. Before being issued, your license application will be reviewed by the zoning administrator to ensure your use is allowed at your business address. The business license has to renewed annually.  If you relocate your business, a license for the new address is required. The same process of reviewing the zoning will apply.
  4. 4. BUSINESS LICENSE REQUIREMENTS  In the event your use changes, after you confirm the use is allowed, you should state the new use on your business license at renewal time.  In the event your business is located in an area going through a community plan update, if the zoning changes and your business license has not been renewed, or does not correctly state your actual use, you may not be protected under the municipal code provision for previously conforming premises and uses.
  5. 5. ZONING CONSIDERATIONS Warehousing & Manufacturing Buildings  The use of your premises may change to accommodate a new customer.  For example, you may occupy a building that is not zoned for heavy industrial uses.  You might need a Conditional Use Permit for certain industrial uses.    In Otay Mesa, a residential project is proposed at the northwest corner of Britannia Boulevard and Airway Road. If you have a use that involves certain chemicals, you would not be able to locate within a certain radius of that area under CalArp requirements.  The City of Chula Vista has industrial zoning in the Municipal Code that applies primarily to the areas west of I-805. Specific plans for the master planned communities east of 805 such as the Eastlake Business Center have different zoning. There are several community plan updates in process in the city of San Diego that can change industrial uses including Southeast San Diego, Encanto, San Ysidro and Otay Mesa. There is uncertainty about the status of the Barrio Logan Community Plan Update with the  collection of over 50,000 signatures for a June 2014 ballot initiative to overturn that community plan update. In the National City, the Westside Specific Plan provides for amortization in the plan area which will not allow changes in the use of properties and establishes a period of time after which a previously conforming use will no longer be allowed. Bottom line – allowable uses are specific to your address. You cannot assume that a previous use at a property, or a use at a nearby property, applies to your property.
  6. 6. CODE COMPLIANCE CONSIDERATIONS  Zoning may allow your use in your building. An alphabet soup of local, state and federal codes may not.  The following are some of the agencies or regulations that govern uses in industrial buildings: - California Building Code (changes every three years), Mechanical & Plumbing Code, Electrical Code - Fire Code - Air Pollution Control District - CalOsha - Americans With Disabilities Act  Any change in use can trigger compliance requirements with one or multiple regulations. When you undertake construction projects in your building, you will generally have to obtain a building permit which will necessitate code upgrades in addition to the change you want to make to the property.  The materials you store as well as the height and density of storage can require upgrading your sprinkler system.  Manufacturing or processing activities can require equipment to meet air emission standards.  Another compliance issue that is very important is E-verify to confirm that your employees are eligible to work in the U.S.
