California Air Quality Permit - Operating Permit (15-CA-b)

A developer operating a facility that emits air pollutants must obtain an operating permit from the local Air Pollution Control District (APCD) or Air Quality Management District (AQMD) through which the developer obtained an Authority to Construct. Each local APCD or AQMD has specific procedures for issuing the Operating Permit. The procedures that follow are a sample of the common procedural requirements for issuance of the Operating Permit.


Air Quality Permit - Operating Permit Process

15-CA-b.1 – Application for Operating Permit

Each local APCD or AQMD uses its own application form for the Operating Permit. Generally, the local air district requires the developer-applicant to certify the developer-applicant completed the construction of the facility or stationary source according to the terms and conditions required in the Authority to Construct and that the facility or stationary source will meet the local air district’s regulations.

15-CA-b.2 to 15-CA-b.3 – Review Application Materials for Completeness

The local APCD or AQMD review the application for completeness and accept the application if complete.

15-CA-b.4 – Review Application Materials

The local APCD or AQMD review and evaluate the application to determine whether the developer-applicant constructed the facility according to the requirements in the Authority to Construct. The local APCD or AQMD also determine whether the developer-applicant will comply with the local air district’s rules and regulations.

15-CA-b.5 – Inspect Facility

The local APCD or AQMD conducts or directs the developer-applicant to conduct, an inspection of the facility or stationary source to determine whether the source meets the requirements of the Authority to Construct and the local air district’s rules and regulations.

15-CA-b.6 – Operating Permit

If the facility or stationary source passes inspection, the air pollution control officer within the local air district issues the developer-applicant an Operating Permit.
