Title V permits, often called Part 70 permits, are issued under the authority in 40 CFR Part 70. Most Title V permits are issued by State and local permitting authorities. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also issues Title V permits, under Part 71, to sources in Indian country and in other situations, as needed.
Title V permits...
- Create legally-enforceable documents designed to improve compliance by clarifying what facilities must do to control air pollution.
- Include all applicable pollution-control requirements from federal or state regulations that apply to a source.
- Allow state and local agencies to collect emission based fees to help carry out their air pollution control objectives.
