Permit By Rule
With implementation starting in 2017, Permit-by-Rule is a new, faster, and less expensive method of permitting from the TN Division of Air Pollution Control (APC). The Permit-by-Rule program will apply for “minor” sources of air emissions for specific source categories. The Permit-by-Rule program is now available for gasoline dispensing facilities (GDFs), stationary emergency internal combustion (IC) engines, and auto body refinishing. Additional categories of sources will be added to the Permit-by-Rule program in the future.
