Expedited Review of Construction Permits (Air Quality)

DHEC provides you with an opportunity to request an expedited permit application review when applying for an air permit. Most minor, synthetic minor, and PSD construction projects are currently eligible for expedited review. Construction permit applications identified as administratively incomplete will not qualify for expedited review and will be returned to you. Resubmitted applications will be subject to the normal review process and timeframes.

The associated fees for expedited review of your construction permit application are based on the complexity of the permit review. Fees paid by your facility for expedited review are in addition to the normal annual air emission fees that your facility must pay. Expedited review fees will be used by the BAQ to help offset the cost of additional resources needed to administer the program and to adjust staffing levels required to accommodate the demand for expedited review.
