Does our business qualify for an NEC?

Currently, there are two options for stormwater permits in California, No Exposure Certification (NEC) or full coverage under the IGP. If your company is planning to claim an NEC, you are responsible for verifying your No Exposure status. If any level of stormwater exposure is present onsite, full permit coverage must be obtained.

To be eligible for NEC certification, a facility must verify that no
industrial products or operations are exposed to precipitation on its
premises. This conditional exclusion will not take effect until the
application and accompanying documents have been submitted, as well as the annual fee.

According to the California Water Resources Control Board, qualifications for an NEC include:

  • Using, storing or cleaning industrial machinery or equipment, and areas where residuals from using, storing or cleaning industrial machinery or equipment remain and are exposed;
  • Materials or residuals on the ground or in stormwater inlets from spills/leaks;
  • Materials or products from past industrial activity;
  • Material handling equipment (except adequately maintained vehicles);
  • And more
