Tennessee: Changes to air permitting rule

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) recently finalized regulations that will simplify the air permitting process for certain facilities. Among the changes are amended provisions that now allow permits to be transferred to new owners and the establishment of regulations allowing permits-by-rule (PBR).

Under the previous regulations, permits were not transferrable from one person to another during a change of ownership, and the new owner had to apply for permits as if there had been no previous permits issued. The revised regulations now allow operating permits, construction permits, notices of coverage, and notices of authorization to be transferred, provided TDEC is notified within 30 days of the change, and the new owners agree to the terms of the permit and make no changes to the source.

TDEC has also established new regulations allowing for the establishment of PBRs, including the qualifying criteria for using a PBR rather than an individual construction or operating permit. The new regulations have identified gasoline-dispensing facilities as being currently allowed to utilize PBRs.

For information, contact Lacey Hardin, of TDEC, at Lacey.Hardin@tn.gov or via telephone at 615-532-0545.
