Title V Operating Permits - Overview

If your facility is deemed to be a "major source" as defined in S.C. Regulation 61-62.70, Title V Operating Permit Program, you are typically required to obtain a Title V operating permit. Alternatively, you may submit a request for a new or revised operating permit with federally enforceable conditions to constrain the operation of the source and limit the source's potential to emit to attain conditional major source status.

If your facility is a newly constructed "major source" facility (or a synthetic minor permitted facility and/or a conditional major permitted facility that currently exceeds a major source emissions threshold), you are required to roll your construction permit(s) into an existing Title V permit, or submit a complete Title V application within twelve (12) months after becoming subject to the Title V operating permit requirements.

Your Title V operating permit is a comprehensive and federally enforceable operating permit that requires U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) review and a public comment period before issuance.
