What is the ISG?

The Industrial Stakeholders Group or ISG focuses on Air Quality Permitting in the State of New Jersey.

The group is composed primarily of DEP air quality permitting staff, DEP air quality enforcement staff and representatives of regulated industries. Attendance is open to anyone with an interest in Air Quality Permits. The group meets quarterly to discuss ways of promoting effective and consistent permits that are protective of the environment and consider the concerns of the regulated community.
