Every license required to engage in any business or to occupy or use any premises, structure, or building for any purpose classified as a Group H occupancy under Chapter 14B-3, and every extension or renewal thereof, shall require the approval of the Fire Commissioner, as a condition precedent to the issuance of every such license and to every extension or renewal thereof. The Fire Commissioner shall make, or cause to be made, an inspection of every Group H occupancy for which an application for license, or for an extension or renewal thereof, has been made. If such inspection shall prove the entire compliance of such Group H occupancy with the applicable requirements of this Code, the Fire Commissioner shall issue, or cause to be issued, a certificate of compliance and approval. Such certificate shall be subject to revocation for cause by the Fire Commissioner at any time and, upon notification of the revocation of such certificate, the Mayor shall revoke any license conditioned upon said certificate. The provisions of this section shall be construed as remedial and retroactive as well as prospective.
