Construction and Modification Application Fees

Disclaimer: The information found on this page is current as of April 3, 2018 . If any differences exist between the information on this page and the effective Tennessee Comprehensive Rules and Regulations, the Tennessee  Comprehensive Rules and Regulations take precedence.

Rule 1200-03-26-.02 of the Tennessee Comprehensive Rules and Regulations provides the authority for the Division to assess fees for issuance of permits to construct and modify air pollution sources. 

Construction permit application fees are based on the anticipated maximum emission rate of all regulated pollutants emitted by the source combined. Emissions are not double-counted if they fall into more than one category, such as a hazardous air pollutant that is also a volatile organic compound. The fees in the table below apply to non-Title V sources (sources that do not pay Title V [major source] annual emission fees at the time of application).

To modify a source, the non-Title V source must pay a permit processing fee equal to one-half the fee in the table below, not to exceed $500, based on the change in the anticipated maximum emission rate.

Anticipated Maximum Emission Rate (Tons/Year) Permit Fee
Less than 10 $ 100
10 to less than 100 $ 500
100 to less than 250 $1,000
250 to less than 500 $2,000
500 to less than 1000 $3,000
1,000 to less than 5,000 $4,000
5,000 or greater $5,000

APC is considering changes to the construction and modification permit application fee rates as part of the non-Title V stakeholder process. For information regarding this stakeholder process click here
