If you own or operate equipment that discharges contaminants to the air, a Ministry of the Environment (MOE) approval is required. Equipment includes simple HVAC, cooling towers, and emergency generators up to complex manufacturing production equipment. This seminar will provide an overview of Ontario’s permitting requirements and explore changes proposed by the MOE, and more importantly, explain the potential consequences of those changes. Noise can be very challenging especially if there are noise sensitive receptors like houses, schools or hospitals nearby. The MOE developed a new noise guideline (NPC 300) that provides many new benefits to existing facilities and to developers, but there are implementation challenges. This seminar will discuss noise compliance, the new noise guideline and make you aware of items that can save you, or cost you money.

Why You Should Attend: This seminar is designed for commercial, institutional, industrial and multi-residential building owners and managers, developers and architects. The intent is to provide an overview of permitting requirements and make you aware of what’s going on at the MOE, potential outcomes and consequences.
