List of General Permits

Due to COVID-related delays in permit processing, the renewed versions of NCG500000 and NCG520000 are not yet ready. If you have a CoC under either General Permit, your CoC is administratively extended until the renewal permits are issued. By applying for your permit renewal in a timely manner, which includes either the payment of all annual fees OR submission of a renewal form, your CoC is automatically extended as per NC general Statute 150B:

§150B-3. Special provisions on licensing.

(a) When an applicant or a licensee makes a timely and sufficient application for issuance or renewal of a license [permit] or occupational license, including the payment of any required license fee, the existing license or occupational license does not expire until a decision on the application is finally made by the agency

Continue to operate under your existing version of the General Permit until we can send you a new one.  We apologize for the inconvenience.
