Application Rejection Frequently Asked Questions

On March 1, 2019, a formalized Application Rejection Process was implemented.  This process will increase permitting efficiency and timeliness.

We require that all applications submitted for processing are complete and ready for technical review upon receipt.  Complete and accurate information is required on all APEN forms in order to keep processing timeliness reasonable.

When preparing an application, please be aware of the following:

  • Any incomplete application is subject to rejection.
  • All applications received without payment or proof of payment for the APEN filing fee(s), and General Permit registration fee(s) as applicable, will be rejected, even if the rest of the application is complete.
  • All rejected applications will require new APEN filing fee(s), and General Permit registration fee(s) as applicable, upon resubmission.

See our Emissions and Permitting Fees page for more information on the current fees.

 

  • Signed APEN form(s) with all sections complete and accurate.
