Preliminary Permits


A preliminary permit, issued for up to three years, does not authorize construction; rather, it maintains priority of application for license (i.e., guaranteed first-to-file status) while the permittee studies the site and prepares to apply for a license. The permittee must submit periodic reports on the status of its studies. It is not necessary to obtain a permit in order to apply for or receive a license.
