The Stationary Source Permitting Program (SSPP) issues and amends Air Quality Permits for new and existing stationary air sources. This includes New Source Review and all Operating Permit Programs.

The permitting process consists of a detailed technical review of facility submitted applications that ultimately culminates in the issuance of a Construction and/or Operating Permit. This review includes a rule applicability analysis (federal and state), a Toxic Impact Assessment (if necessary) and development of periodic monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements to provide reasonable assurance of compliance with applicable regulations.

We are also involved in the development of regulations on local and national levels. SSPP is divided into four industry-specific units: Chemicals, Minerals, NOx and VOC
