Rules. Sources of air contaminants in Virginia must obtain an operating permit. Non-Title V sources must comply with the state operating permit provisions. Major sources subject to the Title V program must comply with Virginia's Title V operating permit program, which follows the federal program and has received final full approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) effective November 30, 2001. The EPA has also approved a Title V permitting threshold for greenhouse gas emissions that is consistent with the federal requirements. See the national section TITLE V for more information.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Division of Air Quality is authorized to administer and enforce all air quality operating permit regulations in Virginia.
