Industrial air emissions reporting
Reporting of pollutant emissions in Alberta is mandated in individual operating approvals and by the province's Air Monitoring Directive.
Industry is required to submit monitoring reports to Alberta Environment. Reporting requirements are specified in approvals and vary depending on the substance, size and nature of the facility.
The reports summarize ambient and source monitoring data and provide information on the quality assurance and quality control measures performed to ensure accurate data.
Details on the reporting requirements of any individual Approval, may be found by using the authorization/approval viewer.
The Air Monitoring Directive contains reporting guidelines for industrial approval holders in Alberta. This document can be ordered from Alberta Environment's Information Centre.
Immediate reporting of certain types of environmental incidents is required under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act and its associated Release Reporting Regulation. For details on this, see Alberta Environment's Release Reporting Guideline.
