Using a Technology Not Currently Approved for Use in Massachusetts

You have several options if you are interested in using a technology not approved for use by MassDEP:

  • For new construction, the technology manufacturer can apply to MassDEP for Piloting Approval, Provisional Use Approval, or for General Use Certification. Once the technology use approval has been issued, you can apply for approval to install it on your property. See MassDEP's Technology Approval Process for I/A Systems .
  • You can apply to MassDEP for a site-specific approval to pilot a technology on your property. To pilot an I/A technology for new construction, including an increase in design flow, you must show that the property could support a conventional system; this provision provides for a back-up in case the piloted system fails.
  • You can apply for a site-specific approval to pilot a technology on your property when it is used to replace an existing failed, failing or a nonconforming system, so long as there is no increase in design flow to the system.

For site-specific piloting, you must apply to both your local Board of Health and to MassDEP.
