Baltimore District
SPN-24-15                        Date: May 15, 2024 USACE is pleased to announce that the new national online application portal and management platform, known as the Regulatory Request System (RRS) now includes an electronic submission option for permit applications. This platform has been introduced to modernize our permit application process and to address our users' expectations by providing a straightforward and transparent process for the submittal of permit requests.

RRS is a web-based platform currently in a beta version that enables users to submit pre-application meeting requests, jurisdictional determination requests, and now applications for individual and general permits. This new system aims to streamline the process, improve efficiency, and provide a more user-friendly experience for our applicants.

We believe that RRS will not only benefit our users by simplifying the application process but will also enhance our ability to effectively manage and review permit requests. We are confident that this modernization initiative will lead to improved customer satisfaction and greater overall efficiency within our Regulatory Program.

In Baltimore District, the RRS should be used to submit requests for pre-application meetings and jurisdictional determinations, to report a potential violation, and to learn the basics of the Regulatory Program. Please do not use the RRS to apply for a permit in Pennsylvania, Maryland, the District of Columbia, and certain military installations within northern Virginia (i.e., Fort Belvoir, Fort Myer, and the Pentagon). For information on how to obtain a Department of the Army authorization or to obtain copies of the permit application forms within the Baltimore District, please visit https://www.nab.usace.army.mil/Missions/Regulatory/Permit-Types-and-Process/.

We encourage users to explore and utilize the new Regulatory Request System to take advantage of its benefits and features. Visit rrs.usace.army.mil today!
