Fee Reduction

Pursuant to the provisions of Section 7314 of the Labor Code,

(a) The division shall, subject to subdivision (f), fix and collect fees for the inspection of conveyances as it determines to be necessary to cover the costs to the division of administering the inspection and permitting programs in this chapter, including fees for necessary subsequent inspections to determine if applicable safety orders have been complied with and for field consultations. In fixing the amount of these fees, the division may include direct costs and a reasonable percentage attributable to the indirect costs of the division for administering this chapter, including the costs related to regulatory development as required by Section 7323.

As of February 1, 2017, the fees have been reduced and are provided in the new Fee Schedule. These Fees do not eliminate the Fee Holiday for Annual Permits that is currently in effect.
