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. Find more information on types of permits, the permitting process, and exceptions.

Forms used to apply for permits and a guide to applicable fees are found below. Some PDF web viewers may not display forms with fill-in capabilities correctly. We recommend downloading the form for the best results.

Carefully read the instructions below before starting to fill out forms. For quicker processing, send reports and applications for emissions-based permits to our permitting department through this form. Emailed submissions will also need to be submitted either as hardcopy, faxed, or on physical electronic media (CD, floppy, flash drive).
