Business Emergency Operations Center Certificate of Post Disaster Reentry Application Information

The NCEM Business Emergency Operations Center (BEOC) manages the state’s process of certifying businesses that are deemed essential to restoring the health, safety, or economic well-being of a disaster area, in accordance with NCGS 166A-19.70.

When an evacuation, curfew or other restrictions are ordered by local governments, local officials can use these certifications to aid in identifying persons who are appropriate to enter restricted areas. Decisions about entry/re-entry are the authority of local governments.

Registered vendors who provide critical services, essential commerce, and necessary goods for the health, safety and economic well-being of citizens can apply for a Certificate of Post Disaster Reentry by following the procedure outlined below.
