California Administrative Codes that require regulatory inspections
The objective of this Practice Directive is to define procedures for responding to regulatory agency inspections.
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.
