NAQS specializes in innovative, flexible, cost-effective and common sense permitting solutions for construction permits, permit-by-rule, operating permits, low emitters, general permits, and no permit required determinations.
The hallmark of a successful permitting project is a well-prepared permit application. Improperly completed permit applications hinder regulatory agencies in processing and issuing permits and delay your progress. The right pieces of information about the applicable regulatory requirements and the pertinent industrial processes must be included in the permit applications to avoid this delay. NAQS is intimately familiar with the requirements of the permitting process and will prepare a detailed and accurate permit application. NAQS can prepare and/or review all types of permit applications. By having NAQS prepare your application and represent you, you will be ensuring quick processing of your permit.
It is imperative to develop an effective permitting strategy for any permitting project. An effective permitting strategy ensures regulatory certainty and maximum operational flexibility to the facilities while providing compliance assurance to the regulators. Utilize the vast experience of NAQS to develop one for your permitting project.
Many regulatory agencies allow industries to draft their own permits and supporting documents, while still retaining the ultimate final regulatory authority. This allows the regulatory agencies to utilize the facilities' expertise and allows the facilities to utilize industry resources and experience in drafting their permit documents. NAQS will use its critical thinking abilities and keen regulatory sense, coupled with your needs, to draft accurate permit documents.
NAQS will provide all the permitting services to regulatory agencies. NAQS staff has in-depth experience gained while working for and with regulatory agencies. Regulatory experience, coupled with the industrial experience, uniquely qualifies NAQS to provide top-notch services to the regulatory agencies in managing work load.
NAQS will provide on and off-site training to your staff regarding various air quality regulations to familiarize or enhance their understanding of the regulatory requirements. By NAQS staff visiting your location, you can save on costs associated with travel and can train multiple staff members.
NAQS certainly hopes that you do not end up in situations where you have to get involved with the legal system to resolve your compliance issues. However, sometimes the unfortunate cannot be avoided. NAQS can assist clients by making this process friendly and easier to go through and provide expert witness testimony. Just like it is important for facilities to use services of a consulting firm like NAQS that understands the ins-and-outs of the complex air quality regulations, it is also imperative that they use a legal firm that understands and has worked effectively with the air quality regulations. NAQS will also assist you by finding and coordinating with legal firms that specialize in federal, state, and local air quality regulations and help develop beneficial multifaceted partnerships for you.

NAQS will develop an effective compliance strategy by pointing out the least burdensome alternatives. This will provide maximum operational flexibility while achieving and maintaining compliance.
NAQS will prepare accurate annual emission inventories and ensure accurate and timely reporting. NAQS' vast knowledge of the regulations will also ensure elimination of unnecessary information, which most often gets reported by industries hence streamlining the process. This reduces the regulatory burden on the industries and ensures time-savings for the regulatory agencies.
Semi-Annual deviations reports are required to be submitted by the industries to the State to report deviations from permit conditions. In these reports, industries have to describe the monitoring methods being used to comply with the permit requirements. They also have to identify the cause of the deviations and what corrective actions were taken to remedy the deviations. NAQS will prepare accurate semi-annual deviations reports, meeting all applicable regulatory requirements.
