Environmental Permits and Approvals

This section provides information that could help determine what environmental permits and other approvals are required by your business, your employees and your household to comply with Maryland’s environmental requirements.  It describes the permit application and approval process and provides a question-based and context-specific guide that could lead to the fitting environmental approval you need.

"The word “approval” refers to permits, registrations, certifications, licenses, and similar issuances granted by MDE after a complete evaluation and review to implement the requirements of Maryland regulations."
