If your facility is eligible for registration, you may use the form below to register with the Agency.

If your facility/use has obtained a valid registration from the Agency, and you wish to expand, change or otherwise modify the legally registered use, you are eligible to apply for a permit to do so. Please review the permit instructions below carefully.
