Renewable Operating Permits (ROPs) / Title V

The operating permit program is a national air permitting requirement under Title V of the federal Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 and is administered by each state. In Michigan, these permits are known as Renewable Operating Permits (ROPs). This page is designed to help initial applicants and those renewing applications navigate the obligations of the permitting program and provide resources to guide facilities through the process. For more information, see the ROP Program Overview.

Electronic Documents Submission

The Air Quality Division (AQD) continues to review, tailor, and amend processes to assist companies in submitting information in an easy and timely manner.  We will continue to require the submittal of signed hard copies of documents, but we will accept electronic submittals as the official receipt date.  Facilities may continue to submit information electronically and mail the signed hard copies to the appropriate unit or district office.  Those choosing to submit electronically, should follow the guidance linked below.
