What are the agency’s general regulatory requirements?

Odors from producing and processing plants must be controlled and not cause a nuisance to your neighbors.

The main requirements are the Notice of Construction (NOC) or permitting program and the Registration program. The NOC program is a pre-construction application and review program that, when approved, result in permits to businesses with site-specific conditions to achieve compliance with air quality laws and regulations. The NOC applications  rely on case-by-case decisions which reflect the specifics of the application and the emission control technology options and projected impacts for that specific proposal.

The Registration program includes on-site inspections, compliance reviews, and annual fees to the Agency. The inspections review compliance with specific permit conditions (obtained through the NOC approval process) along with general agency regulations.
