The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ Air Division) has been repeatedly reminding the regulated community of several air permit application requirements that are easily overlooked according to a report by Trinity Consultants. These items may not have been strictly required in the past, but are now on the state’s completeness checklist.
- Disclosure Statements are required for many types of permit applications (except permit modification applications). In general, these are required to minimize the risk of a company with a bad environmental record from locating in Arkansas.
- Certificates of Good Standing are required from the Arkansas Secretary of State, and the state of corporate registration if outside of Arkansas. These are required to ensure that a company is in good business standing before receiving a permit.
- Letters of Delegation of Signatory Authority are needed for applications that will be signed by a company employee not officially defined as a “responsible official.” For example, if a plant manager is to sign an application, and he is not a president or vice president of the company,then a letter delegating signatory authority must be obtained and submitted with the application.
What this means to you
Arkansas is now requiring Disclosure Statements, Certificates of Good Standing, and Letters of Delegation of Signatory Authority for air permit applications.
