Operating Permit Application

Operation permits are also known as Title V permits. Title V is a federal program designed to standardize air quality permits and the permitting process for major sources of emissions across the country. The name "Title V" comes from Title V of the 1990 federal Clean Air Act Amendments which requires the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish a national, operating permit program. Accordingly, EPA adopted regulations [Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 1, Part 70 (Part 70)], which require states and local permitting authorities to develop and submit federally enforceable operating permit programs for EPA approval.

The revisions to 18 AAC 50 adopting and requiring the use of the Title V Standard Application and Forms are effective as of September 14, 2012.  Applicants/Permittees will be required to use the forms as of March 13, 2013, but may start using them as of September 14, 2012.  zip file
