Marijuana Processing & Cannabis Oil Extraction
Occupancy permits are typically based on both the configuration of a space and the use(s) of that space. When the user changes – including adding new hazardous materials for solvent extraction devices – a certificate of occupancy may now longer be valid.
According to the State of Colorado Marijuana Facility Guidance v.1, Fire code officials have the authority to require an owner to provide a Hazardous Materials Opinion and Report (HMOR) from a registered design professional or qualified specialist, laboratory or fire safety specialty organization. This technical opinion or report is now considered critical to ensure safe operating compliance.
When a specific hazard operation is identified, the fire code official may require facilities to obtain operational permits. Some hazards triggering this requirement include Cryogenic CO2, other Compressed Gases, Flammable and Combustible Liquids, Fumigation and Insecticidal Fogging, Hazardous Materials, LP Gas and CNG.
