State Implementation Plans to Address Emissions During Startup, Shutdown and Malfunction


EPA and litigants have renegotiated the deadline for this final action from June 12, 2014 until May 22, 2015.

The modified schedule also establishes a deadline for signature of a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPR) on September 5, 2014. The SNPR is in response to a recent D.C. Circuit court decision (Cement NESHAP case), and it would be specific to "affirmative defense" provisions in SIPs.

February 12, 2013 - EPA is proposing a rule that would ensure states have plans in place that require industrial facilities across the country to follow air pollution rules during times when the facility is starting up or shutting down, or when a malfunction occurs.
