APCD Permit Application Forms & Fees

Any piece of equipment or project that emits or controls air pollutants requires a permit prior to installation and operation unless it is specifically exempted from the APCD’s permit requirements. Companies must apply for and receive a permit before even purchasing new equipment to know exactly what the permit conditions and other requirements will be before construction, installation, and operation begin. More information types of permits, the permitting process, and exceptions can be found here.

Forms used to apply for permits and a guide to applicable fees are found below. Carefully read the instructions below before starting to fill out forms. For quicker processing, please submit reports and applications for emissions-based permits to our permitting department. Any submissions e-mailed will need to also be submitted either as hardcopy, faxed, or on physical electronic media (CD, floppy, flash drive).
