Learn the rules and requirements for renewing an Air District Authorities to Construct (A/C), Permits to Operate (P/O), Certificates of Registration and Major Facility Review (Title V) Permits.
Certain Air District permits require renewal or action prior to expiration. This applies to Authorities to Construct (A/C), Permits to Operate (P/O), Certificates of Registration and Major Facility Review (Title V) Permits.
Here is an overview of the renewal process:
Authority to Construct (A/C) - If any equipment covered in the A/C is not completed before it expires, then you must notify the Air District prior to expiration. If an A/C does not qualify for renewal, the applicant must obtain a new A/C by resubmitting a new permit application.See Air District Regulation 2, Rule 1. The Air District will issue an invoice for the A/C renewal after the notification is received.
Permit to Operate (P/O) - Prior to receiving an invoice to renew the P/O, you may be asked to provide information through the Data Update process. The renewal invoice is typically issued 30 to 60 days prior to expiration.
Certificate of Registration (Registration) - Depending on the type of equipment registered, notification to renew a Registration is either done by e-mail or by the issuance of a renewal invoice. The renewal invoice is typically issued 30 to 60 days prior to expiration. For registrations that are also included on a P/O, the registrations will be renewed at the same time as the P/O.
Major Facility Review (Title V) Permit - This type of permit is renewed every 5 years.The Responsible Official must submit an application to renew the Title V permit no later than 6 months and no earlier than 12 months from expiration. The Air District will issue an invoice for the renewal during the process.
Prior to receiving an invoice to renew a P/O, the Air District may periodically ask for information through a ‘Data Update’, which is typically sent 110 to 150 days prior to permit expiration. Data is typically updated every 1 to 4 years, depending on the device. Not all devices (sources) require updating during this process and may not be listed in the Data Update.
