Title V Permits

Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act requires that state, local and tribal air quality agencies develop and maintain a program to issue federal operating permits to affected facilities. San Diego County Air Pollution Control District Regulation XIV (Title V Operating Permits) contains the requirements for implementing the Title V permit program.

The District’s Title V Operating Permit Program requires all major sources, as defined by Rule 1401, to obtain Title V permits.  Permits are issued pursuant to District Regulation XIV and incorporate federal, state and local District requirements that are contained in existing District permits for these sources.
