Summary

An air quality approval is required by owners or operators of a source of air contaminants for the construction, operation, or modification of the source. This applies to most existing or new industrial and some commercial or institutional facilities.

Anyone constructing, operating, and/or modifying what is considered by the department to be a source of contaminants. This applies to most existing or new industrial and some commercial or institutional facilities in New Brunswick.

The following are the major services that are provided through the Approvals program: Application Review, Approval Development and Issuance, and Compliance Verification. The actual time spent on providing these services increases with facility complexity and associated environmental risk. In keeping with this, the annual fees for Air Quality Approvals are broken into five classes that include Class 1A, 1B, 2, 3, and 4 facilities. A Class 1A facility is considered the most complex and requires the most regulatory effort, and therefore has the highest annual fee. Conversely, a Class 4 facility is considered the least complex and requires the lowest associated amount of regulatory effort, and therefore has the lowest annual fee.
