As of February 1, 2018, TCEQ is requiring that permit by rule (PBR) and standard permit (STDP) registration applications be submitted online via ePermits. The Air Permits Division (APD) is revising the process to become more efficient, effective, and environmentally mindful. TCEQ asserts that the change in procedures will maximize the APD resources for efficiency, i.e. allowing APD to streamline applications for project reviews instead of handling paper and data entry.

To submit an ePermit application:

  • Click on "eRegistrations" under the TCEQ Online Services on the TCEQ website.
  • Next, click on "Register thru STEERS" and follow the instructions.

Note that, this requirement will not apply to Concrete Batch Plants, Rock and Concrete Crushers, Hot Mix Asphalt Plants, Polyphosphate Blenders, or portables because applications for these sources are not yet available through the ePermits system.

Additional information on the background of ePermits, as well as detailed instructions for using ePermits, is available by clicking here.

If you require assistance with e-Permitting or any other environmental issue, please reach out to the Houston office by calling (713) 552-1371 or the Trinity office nearest you by calling (800) 229-6655.
