Notifying the Air Program about administrative facility changes

Facilities holding air permits must notify the Air Program about changes to the facility name, ownership, parent company or responsible official. Other changes, such as contact names, email addresses or phone numbers, can also be submitted through the process described below or made directly by the facility through the DNR Switchboard.

Note: There is a different process to follow for closing down a facility with air permits.


To notify the Air Program of changes, send a letter or email including the following information to the address below on or as soon as possible after the date of change.

  • Facility Identification (FID) Number
  • Old facility name and new facility name (if changing)
  • Facility location address
  • Old owner and new owner (if changing)
  • Old responsible official and new responsible official (if changing), including:
    • Name
    • Title
    • Mailing address
    • Email address
    • Phone number
  • Date the change(s) occurred

Send or email information to:

Air Permit Section, AM/7
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
101 S Webster St
PO Box 7921
Madison WI 53707

Upon receipt of the notification, Air Program staff will enter the new facility information into the department system and the update(s) will be reflected in the next permit issued for the facility and the next emission inventory report. For facilities covered under Registration Permits or General Permits, the Air Program will issue a new permit coverage approval letter to reflect the changes.

Facilities that would like to reflect changes to the facility name and/or responsible official in their current operation permit must apply for an Administrative Permit Revision by filling out the permit application Form 4530-100 [PDF] and submitting the application as instructed in the form. For changes in ownership or operational control, facilities should also provide the Air Program with a written agreement containing a specific date for transfer of permit responsibility, coverage and liability between the current and new permittee, pursuant to s. NR 407.11 (1)(d), Wis. Adm. Code.

The new owner is responsible for continuing to meet all applicable requirements and permit conditions. There are no fees associated with administrative permit revisions.

Additional obligations

A facility undergoing administrative changes may be subject to additional environmental obligations. An owner selling or purchasing a facility should demonstrate due diligence in identifying and managing any environmental liabilities.
