All issued permits shall be posted or displayed in a conspicuous place on the premises. Fire Permits are not transferable, and any change in use or occupancy of premises shall terminate any certificate of compliance previously issued. The following are the types of occupancies which must file for the annual permit and pay the appropriate fees:

• Business
