Air Quality Permit Checklist

California Government Code Section 65850.2 requires that the business/property owner or authorized agent indicate whether the owner or authorized agent will need to comply with the applicable requirements of the Health and Safety Code or the requirements for a permit for construction or modification from the air quality management district exercising jurisdiction in the area of the proposed project.

South Coast AQMD provides an Air Quality Permit checklist to help determine if your business needs to obtain permitting/registration clearance from the South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast AQMD) in order to obtain an occupancy permit. 

For further information on whether your business may require permits, you may also consult South Coast AQMD Rule 219 - Equipment Not Requiring a Written Permit Pursuant to Regulation II (PDF).

This does not apply to applications solely for residential construction.
