About Businesses

Local businesses are an important part of any community as they provide jobs, economic opportunities, vital services, and a sense of community pride. There are many rules and regulations in place that determine how different businesses can operate in a way that protects public health and safety. In Los Angeles County, Public Health is responsible for permitting, inspecting, and enforcing the rules at many types of businesses. More detailed information about each type of business can be found in the links below.
