Air toxics reporting overview
The first annual air toxics reports are due by June 30, 2024. These reports would include calendar year 2023 emissions. Subsequent reports are due on an annual basis on June 30 each year and include data on the previous calendar year.
All sources required to obtain an operating permit and synthetic minor sources are required to report annual facility-wide air toxics emissions.
If a facility changes ownership or control of the facility during the reporting year, the owner or operator as of June 30, 2024 is responsible for submitting the report. If a facility did not operate in the reporting year, it must verify the facility operating status in the provided reporting template. CDPHE will calculate zero emissions for facilities that did not operate at any point during the reporting year.
CDPHE will provide an electronic submission process. Additional guidance and any relevant reporting templates will be posted on this website once they are finalized.
A full list of all air toxics that must be reported are available on our Toxic air contaminants page.
For the initial reports due June 30, 2024 no fee is required as part of the report submission. Any fees in future years would be dependent on rulemaking action from the Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC).
This annual report does not replace APEN reporting requirements. Toxic air contaminant (TAC) reporting does not exempt reporting of smaller quantities of TAC that are below the reporting thresholds for APEN. While the Air Pollution Control Division will use APEN data to draft facility-wide TAC estimates for certification and review, facilities should still follow APEN requirements.
