Liquor Commission License Inspections

As part of the license application for beverage sales with the Board of License Commissioners for Baltimore County, the Fire Marshal's Office will receive a copy of the notice of application. A fire inspector will visit your establishment to determine if a fire safety inspection is needed.

Inspections are conducted in accordance with the requirements found in the National Fire Protection Association 101, Life Safety Code, 2006 edition.

Occupant Load

In addition, assembly occupancies (those used for the gathering of 50 or more persons for entertainment, eating, drinking or similar activity) must post the occupant load posted in a conspicuous location near the main exit from the room or space being used.

The certificate for posting occupant load is issued by the Fire Marshal. If your assembly occupancy does not have a capacity certificate, personnel from the Fire Marshal's Office may need to determine your maximum permitted occupant capacity.

Fire codes require Crowd Manager training for establishments used for gatherings of 50 or more people.
