What is Title V?
In 1990, Title V was added to the Federal Clean Air Act requiring the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish a nationally enforceable operating permit program. Accordingly, the EPA passed regulations requiring each state or local permitting authority to develop and submit a federally enforceable facility operating permit program for EPA approval. Title V is intended to further facilitate and enhance air quality planning, emission controls, and compliance, and to improve existing emission inventories.
In addition to existing regulations, Title V provides for:
EPA veto authority over permit issuance
greater opportunity for federal and citizen enforcement
enhanced public participation during the permit issuance process
clearer determination of applicable requirements
improved enforceability of applicable requirements
enhanced public access to enforcement actions and emissions from Title V facilities
