Print or Request a Hard Copy Annual Operating Report:

The partially-prefilled form is to be used to complete the AOR if you are not using the EAOR. You can either print a partially pre-filled hard copy Annual Operating Report form for your facility or request that one be mailed to you.


Signature: Electronic or Hard Copy

You can sign an Annual Operating Report electronically if you prepared the report using EAOR and submit it via the web or email to DEP. If signing electronically, you must first have an Air account and PIN, as discussed below. However, an Air account and PIN are not required to use the EAOR software. If not using the electronic signature feature to sign the Annual Operating Report, then please see the Annual Operating Report Letter for where to send hard copy signature pages, based on whether your facility is Title V or Non-Title V. The Annual Operating Report is not complete until it is signed either electronically OR with a hard copy signature.

AOR Electronic Signature Instructions

  1. The Annual Operating Report should be signed by the owner/authorized representative or responsible official named in Subsection I.D. of the AOR form. For Title V facilities, a responsible official must sign the AOR but it does not have to be the Primary Responsible official. If you need to change the responsible official, please complete and submit the Responsible Official Notification Form, DEP Form No. 62-213.900(3).
  2. You must have a Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Division of Air Resource Management account and PIN to electronically sign an Annual Operating Report. If you already have an Electronic Permit Submittal and Processing System or EAOR DEP Division of Air Resource Management account and PIN you do not need to obtain a new one. Otherwise, you will need to register an account and submit a PIN request. 
  3. If you do not have a DEP Division of Air Resource Management PIN, you will need to print out the PIN Request Form, sign and date it, and email it to the address on the form. Your PIN assignment will be emailed to you.
