Title V Program
The 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) established a comprehensive operating permit program under Title V.
The Title V permitting part of the program has been the focus of tremendous efforts throughout the country.
Twelve offices in Florida share implementation of the permitting program: six districts; five local programs; and, the headquarters office located in Tallahassee.
The state of Florida is considered a national leader in issuing Title V permits. Florida has issued all of its Title V permits! See the current stats at EPA's Title V Permit Issuance Status web site (External Link). Florida was one of the first states in the Southeast to post all of its Title V permits on the world wide web for EPA's review and public access.
The Title V program also features a unique fee system. Sources calculate and pay annual fees based on their air pollution for the previous calendar year.
