To obtain a permit from AQMD, owners and/or operators of
equipment that emits air contaminants may be required to comply with the new source review
(NSR) requirements of AQMD's
Regulation XIII or
2005. One possible requirement is the application of Best
Available Control Technology (BACT).
The links in the left border of this page provide access to information about
what BACT is, how it is determined, and the BACT Guidelines for common types of
What's New! To receive notices of
BACT Scientific Review Committee meetings and new BACT determinations, please
