Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Oklahoma is authorized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to administer its own air emissions permit program. Facilities are required to obtain an operating permit before beginning operations. Major sources must apply for a Title V operating permit, also referred to as a Part 70 operating permit, which contains separate permit requirements and fees. EPA granted full approval of DEQ's Title V operating permit program effective November 30, 2001.
