Beginning February 1, 2018, TCEQ required that all Permit by Rule (PBR) and Standard Permit (SP) Registrations be submitted through the ePermits program online via TCEQ STEERS. However, confidential information was not accepted through ePermits and applicants were requested to mail hardcopy documentation of the confidential information to the TCEQ. In addition, only the Administrative Actions for New Source Review (NSR) permits such as the Change of Ownership could be submitted via ePermits.
With the latest announcement on April 13, 2018, TCEQ will start accepting Case-by-Case permit (also known as NSR permit) renewal applications and confidential information through ePermits.
Additional guidance on STEERS as well as ePermitting are available on TCEQ's website.
Please contact the Dallas Office at (972) 661-8100, or the Trinity office nearest you by calling (800) 229-6655, if you would like to obtain more details on the ePermitting procedures.
