Air Compliance

The main objective for the Air Compliance Program is to ensure that regulated facilities in Virginia are complying with applicable regulatory standards. Compliance activities are performed in six regional offices by air inspectors who conduct site evaluations, observe source emissions testing, and review a variety of federal and/or state required facility reports to determine the overall compliance status of more than 5,000 facilities.

The Office of Air Compliance Coordination (OACC) is responsible for assisting our regional staff in their work; managing federal fiscal commitments; providing training opportunities and regulatory information; participating in policy development; and assessing program effectiveness.

When the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgates new federal regulations for air sources links and/or other information can be found here in an outreach effort to provide the latest regulatory information available. If you need specific regulatory guidance or further assistance please feel free to contact Central Office OACC Staff or Regional Air Staff.
