BAGUIO CITY -- The city government has launched its Business Permit License System (BPLS), which will see business permits issued within ten to 30 minutes.
Mayor Mauricio Domogan, however, clarified that the speedy issuance will only be possible if the applicant has submitted all the required pertinent documents for a business permit or renewal of the same.
Records showed as of Sept. 14, the city government has issued a total of 17,931 regular business permits.
Last year, a total of 19,083 permits were issued.
“We are now computerized so there is no reason that the processing will take more than 10 to 30 minutes.” Domogan said.
To process a business permit, the applicant is required to submit a barangay clearance if the business is located in a residential area and there is a need for an exemption from the city zoning office.
“We do not also want to disturb the peace in residential areas,” Domogan said.
A health certificate is also required if the establishment serves or prepares food or is engaged in activities where the health certificate of the workers is necessary.

Likewise required is a clearance from the City Environment, Parks and Management Office for the drainage and sewerage permit, aside from a clearance from the Bureau of Fire Protection – Baguio City, stating that the establishment is not a fire hazard.
