Explanation of Headings
- Item Type:
- See the list of types of items below.
- Number and Title or Description:
- This is the regulation number, permit number, Board order number, etc., followed by the title or description. For a regulation, this is the title of the regulation. For a Board order, it is the name of the responsible party, a slash and the topic. For a permit, the name of the plant. If this is a revision to an existing permit, the revision number is given in parentheses after the name.
If the document is available electronically, the number (if any) or the title is a hyperlink to the document. The linked document is usually in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. Depending on your computer configuration, equations and special characters might not display properly on your screen or printer. If you have trouble opening a document by clicking on the link, try this: Right-click the link and choose "Save Target As..." or "Save Link As..."

- For a regulation:
- PRIA: Preliminary Regulatory Impact Assessment for a draft or proposed regulation: a description of the expected effects of the regulation change
- RC: comments from the public and APCD's responses (for a proposed regulation change that has already gone through a public comment period)
- For a permit: Statement of Basis (SoB): a summary of the permit, describing the purpose and contents of the permit
- This column is empty for other types of items.
- Legal Notice:
- The date the legal notice was to be published in the local newspaper. The date is a hyperlink to the text of the legal notice as posted on this web site. The legal notice provides the dates of the comment period and the public hearing (if any), the name and address for the specific person to whom written comments can be sent and will usually include the name and contact information of a person who can answer questions. In the case of external draft regulations, "NPR" may appear indicating a link to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, rather than a legal notice.

- Hearing Date:
- The date of the public hearing for this regulation or Board order, or the date of the meeting if the item is being reviewed by a committee of the Board. A hearing is not required for permits, but a public hearing may be scheduled if the District determines that there are germane, unresolved issues or substantial public interest, in accordance with Regulation 2.07.
