Air Quality

Air Regulation
The Colorado Air Quality Control Commission is the state agency responsible for developing and adopting a regulatory air quality management program for Colorado.

The commission also oversees the implementation of the programs they adopt. The commission is responsible for hearing appeals of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Air Pollution Control Division's (APCD) enforcement programs, and issuance of permit terms and conditions.

Quality Permit for Businesses
The state's Small Business Assistance Program can help you determine if you need to have a permit for your business. They can also assist you with completing the appropriate permit application forms. For more information go to Colorado's Small Business Assistance Program's website.
