What is the General Permit Review Process?
Federal Operating Permits - Title V
Permit reviewers will evaluate Title V applications and develop permits that codify all applicable state and federal requirements for all of the emission units at a permitted area and include all of the required additional monitoring.
All operating permits must undergo the following steps prior to issuance:
- public notice
- affected state review
- EPA review
There are two types of operating permits:
- general operating permits (GOPs)
- site operating permits (SOPs)
For additional information regarding GOPs and SOPs, see the tabbed information below.
