You can select that your permit is currently invalid but that the renewal process is in progress. Before attending the verification process, ensure that you have obtained the renewed permit/license from the previous year. This means that you should have the physical or digital copy in hand to avoid a zero score.
In such cases, the facility must keep all the communication with the authority on record and be able to demonstrate it is under renewal with the authority without a need for further action from the facility as required by the authority. If the facility can provide these supporting documents, FEM will not be scored 0.
A facility will score 0 in the entire FEM if they don't have a legal required environmental permit at all.
