Authority: 

California Administrative Codes that require regulatory inspections


Objective: 

The objective of this Practice Directive is to define procedures for responding to regulatory agency inspections. 


Statement: 

Federal, State, and Local regulations require regulatory agencies to periodically inspect businesses.

The types of inspections SFSU typically encounters fall into the following categories:

1.       Permit compliance and/or renewal inspections (BAAQMD, CUPA, SFDPH)

2.       Hazardous materials / hazardous waste storage inspections (CUPA, SFDPH)

3.       Fire safety inspections (Cal-Fire, SFFD)

4.       Occupational health & safety inspections (Cal/OSHA)

Inspectors may call ahead to make an appointment, or may show up unannounced. 

Permit renewal inspections are often scheduled in advance, and are a mandatory part of the permit renewal process.

 

Safety (Cal/OSHA) inspections are generally unannounced, usually resulting from an employee complaint or following a workplace accident.  Their inspection format is very structured and formal.
