Transfer of Permit Ownership

Transfer of Permit Ownership Procedures

The Air Quality & Climate Division  requires an amendment of an existing Air Pollution Control Permit whenever there is a change in ownership of a facility. The procedures that must be followed in amending the Permit depend on the degree of changes that will occur at the facility as a result of the change in ownership.

All subsequent owners and/or operators of a Facility must complete and submit this Transfer of Ownership form prior to the transfer. In addition,  subsequent owners and/or operators must also submit to the Agency, as part of the request, information to establish legal ownership and/or interest in the property,  a letter from the future owner acknowledging the permit and providing, in advance, a specific date for transfer of permit responsibility, coverage and liability, and a signed certification of information accuracy (included with form). The terms and conditions of the existing Permit issued to the prior owner/operator shall remain in full force and effect and be binding upon the new owner/operator until the issuance of an amended Permit or denial. Should the transfer request be denied, the new owner and/or operator must take whatever action is necessary to comply with the denial.

Further details along with the Transfer of Ownership form can be found at Air Pollution Control Permits to Construct and/or Operate Transfer of Ownership Procedures.
