WHAT IS A GENERAL PERMIT VERSUS A GENERAL OPERATING PERMIT?

A General Permit is a pre-approved permit
and certificate which applies to a specific class of significant sources. By issuing a General Permit, the Department indicates that it approves the activities authorized by the General Permit, provided that the owner or operator of the source, registers with the Department and meets the requirements of the General Permit. If a source belongs to a class of sources which qualify for a General Permit and the owner or operator of the source registers for the General Permit, the registration satisfies the requirements of NJAC 7:27-8.3 for a permit and certificate.
