A new AVC Permit is required for:

  • A retail business that will be selling AVC Products and does not have a current AVC Permit
  • A retail business that has previously held an AVC Permit, but has had a change of ownership, or a change of a permitted business location

Applying for a new AVC Permit is easy. Prior to starting your online application, you will want to have the following information readily available:

  • Business information, including physical and mailing addresses
  • Ownership information
  • Your Federal Tax ID number

Permit Fee Change: DSHS has been authorized by the Texas Legislature to charge an additional fee to recover costs associated with development and maintenance of Texas.gov services. There is an additional fee of $4.00 that will be added to the two-year AVC permit fee of $55.00. Therefore, the total permit fee for each facility will be $59.00 (for both initial permits and renewals). This fee applies to all AVC permit holders, including parent companies, whether or not your business chooses to apply for its AVC Permit online.

The AVC Warning Sign and permit application form are available in electronic format from the AVC homepage. Warning signs may also be obtained by contacting the AVC Permit Program by telephone at (512) 834-6603 or via email to the AVC Permit Program.
