NJDEP Publishes Registration Process for Permit Extension Act of 2020

On July 1, 2020, the Permit Extension Act of 2020 (“PEA”) was signed into law.  The PEA extended the terms of certain governmental permits, approvals, and deadlines for the duration of the “COVID-19 Extension Period,” contingent on the holder of the permit or approval registering the affected permit or approval with the issuing state agency.  As required under the PEA, on September 8, 2020, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (“NJDEP”) published a Notice in the New Jersey Register listing the permits and approvals that are tolled by the PEA.  In addition, the Notice provided a link to a website for additional information regarding the registration process and a registration form.  The Extension Period began on March 9, 2020 and continues until the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Under the PEA, the eligible permits and/or approvals must be registered with the NJDEP by October 8, 2020 (i.e., within 30 days of publication of the Notice) to qualify for an extension.
