What is AIMs? 

Air Information Management System (AIMS)  

Regulatory requirements include Title V permitting, the Annual Inventory, and Emission Statements, as well as other regulations that are part of the State Implementation Plan (SIP).  The Title V regulation is found in the Pennsylvania Code, Title 25, Chapter 127.  The Annual Inventory regulation is found in the Pennsylvania Code, Title 25, Chapter 135.1-135.5.  The Emission Statement regulation is found in Pennsylvania Code, Title 25, Chapter 135.21.  The Emission Statement information is due March 1 of each year The Annual Inventory information is due March 1 or within 60 days of the date the facility is notified by DEP that the facility is subject to Annual Inventory, whichever is later.  DEP has chosen March 1 as the deadline for the forms to avoid having to request Emission Statement and Annual Inventory information separately.

When a facility submits the necessary information to the appropriate DEP regional office, the inspector responsible for the plant enters the data into the Bureau of Air Quality’s computer database.  This database is called the Air Information Management System (AIMS).  AIMS data confirmation reports showing site emissions totals are sent each summer to all companies whose data entry into AIMS has been completed.
