Other Air Quality Related Issues

The UK Environmental Quality Management Department (EQM), Air Quality Section is tasked with ensuring permit compliance associated with emissions released into the ambient air from stationary sources which is located on the ‘Permit Required Operations’ of this website.   However, there are multiple UK Departments and the Asbestos section in EQM, which specialize in different regulatory permit requirements beyond monitoring the type and amount of allowable emissions.   Although the program goals overlap, particular aspects such as health and safety should be redirected to the persons listed below.
